If the solid is square or rectangular in shape, you can measure the three dimensions and multiply them to get volume in cubic units, such as cubic centimeters.

If the solid is an irregular shape, you will need to use water displacement to measure the volume. To do this you place enough water in a graduated cylinder that will cover the solid. Then record the water volume. Next, carefully place the solid into the cylinder. Measure the new water volume. The volume of the solid is the second water volume minus the original water volume.

How do you obtain the volume of an irregular solid insoluble in water?

Measure the volume of the water you have. Insert irregular solid. Measure the volume of the water you have now, and subtract the initial water volume from the new water volume. The difference in volumes is the volume of your irregular solid.

How can you measure the volume of an irregular solid?

It's simple, you just have to take a measurable recipient big enough to contain the solid, fill the recipient with a known volume of water and drop the irregular solid into the water. Then you can measure the increase of volume, which will be equivalent to the volume of your solid.


What is the process used to find the volume of an irregular solid?

There is no simple method. First of all the answer depends on the size of the solid. It is incredibly difficult to measure the volume of an irregular rock with a mass of several tons! If the solid is small then you can measure its volume by displacement. Partly fill a graduated cylinder with a fluid (water, for example) and read off the volume from the graduation. Insert the object into the cylinder and measure the new volume. The volume of the solid is the difference in the two volumes. Obviously, this method will not work if the solid contains parts which are soluble in the fluid.


How could you use a beaker to measure the volume of a solid?

The easiest way to measure the volume of an irregularly shaped solid is to use a graduated cylinder and a liquid which does NOT dissolve the solid to be measured. Pour sufficient liquid to cover the solid (an eyeball estimate.) Note the volume of the liquid. Then place the solid into the cylinder with the liquid, and note the volume. The additional volume, i.e., the volume before adding the solid, is then subtracted from the new volume. The difference is the volume of your solid sample.
