Volume

You have a filled glass 8 inches tall with a radius of 1.5 inches If you pour the water into a 12 inch glass with a radius of 2.5 inches How much more water can that glass hold?

It can hold about 179.07 cubic inches more of water.

Volume = pi r^2

The volume of the water in the 8 inch glass = 8 pi (1.5)(1.5) = 18pi = about 56.55 cubic inches

The volume of the 12 inch glass = 12 pi (2.5)(2.5) = 75 pi = about 235.62 cubic inches

The difference in volume is 57 pi or about 179.07 cubic inches

*previous answer used a different size glass

### Why does glass breaks when it is filled with extremely hot water?

It is only true that glass breaks when it's filled with
extremely hot water when it has just been filled with extremely
cold water. Glass cannot handle extremely volatile temperature
changes, which is why you must be careful to do things such as
rinse a glass with warm water that you've just taken out of the
freezer, and you must always let a beaker/crucible cool before you
rinse it out after burning it. The same rules apply to porcelain as
well.

### How do you measure all the water in your glass?

*Weigh the empty glass ( For Accurate Result - Dry the Glass in
a Drier to remove moisture and then weigh)
* Fill it with water and Weigh
* get the Exact weight of the water ( whatever level the glass
may be filled)
*Use relationship b/w Voulme,Mass and Density of Water @
Temperature to find out the Volume of the water U filled up!
Volume = Density * Mass will give u exactly what u want !

### Which will carry most water 2 small pipes with a radius of 2 and 3 inches or the larger single pipe with a radius of 5 inches?

To start, we will find the cross sectional area of the
pipes.
Pipe with radius of 2 inches
Cross sectional area = PI x radius2 = 12.56 inches2
Pipe with radius of 3 inches
Cross sectional area = PI x radius2 = 28.26 inches2
Pipe with radius of 5 inches
Cross sectional area = PI x radius2 = 78.5 inches2
As the cross sectional area of the pipe with a radius of 5
inches (78.5 inches2) is greater than the sum of the cross
sectional areas of the pipes with radii of 2 inches and 3 inches
(40.82 inches2), it can be concluded that the pipe with a radius of
5 inches will be able to carry the most water. (Assuming that all
three pipes are the same length).
