Generally a caliper would be the proper tool.
you measure across the top of the cylinder if it is a cylinder or across the circle if it is flat
You would measure liquids with a graduated cylinder.You would measure liquids with a graduated cylinder.
The instrument you would use could be a beaker or a graduated cylinder.
You would measure a nickel in a Graduated Cylinder. Coins are normally measured in grams for weight and mm for diameter and thickness. A U.S. nickel weighs 5 gm, is 21.2 mm in diameter, and is 2 mm thick.
To measure a diameter, or length, you would use meters, centimeters, or millimeters. To measure the surface area, use square meters, etc. To measure the volume, use cubic meters, etc.
Of course not . . . if they were different, the "cylinder" would be a truncated cone.
you would use a graduated cylinder to measure volumes of liquids
A tape measure or ruler.
You should clarify what you want to measure about it: its diameter, mass, weight, color, etc. If you want to measure its diameter, that would usually be specified in microns (= micrometers).
The volume of the cylinder would be doubled.
The ceilometer instrument.
The radius of the cylinder would be 0.64cm ! The radius is half the diameter - length has nothing to do with the question !
I would use a graduated cylinder to measure out 50 mL of water. Graduated Cylinder <--------------------
Theoretically a graduated cylinder...but if the only graduate I've got holds five liters with graduations 100 ml apart and I'm trying to measure to the milliliter, the pipette would be more accurate.
There would be a total of 18.84in3 inside the cylinder.
A tape measure.
Measuring tape, if you call it instrument :)
I would use millimetres to measure the diameter of a thumbtack (commonly known as a drawing pin in the UK). The instrument depends on whether you want the length, in which case a ruler will work, or the width of the shaft, where a vernier caliper or micrometer would be better.
First of all it's "What unit of measurement would you use to measure the diameter of a drink can?" Secondly you would probably use either centimeters or inches, depending on where you are in the world.
it depends... why would you use a graduated cylinder?
use an ometer
centimeters or millimeters
