### How do you measure the volume of irregular solids?

You place it in water to see the volume of water it displaces. Fill a large, graduated measuring cylinder to about halfway with water (say to 50mL) Put the irregular solid in, and measure the volume it reads (solid + water). (say it reads 80mL) So the volume of the irregular solid will be: volume(solid+water) - volume(water). For example, the volume of the water was 50mL, and when the solid was added, the volume increased…

### What is the name of the procedure you need to complete to find the volume of an irregular object?

The name of the procedure to find the volume of an irregular object is calleD water displacement. You can do this by using a graduated cylinder. so say you fill the graduate up to 50ML and then you drop the object in and it is 100ML . so that tells you the volume of the object is 50ML because you subtract 100ML - 50ML = 50ML

### How do you find the volume of an irregular object using a graduated cylinder?

Step 1) Fill the graduated cylinder with water to a specific volume (example: 50ml). Step 2) Drop the irregular shaped object into the graduated cylinder. Step 3) Measure the new level of the water in the graduated cylinder. Step 4) The difference in volumes in the graduated cylinder equals the volume of the irregular object example: original volume of water in cylinder = 50ml volume of water in cylinder with irregular object = 55ml 55ml…

### How can you find displacement of a metal in 50 mL of water when given the mass?

Place the piece of metal in 50mL of water and subtract the 50mL from the new volume of water. The difference will be the volume of the metal in mL and cm3. Then find the density by dividing the mass by the volume of the metal. The water must completely cover the metal in order for the displacement method of determining the volume to work.
