**What tools can be used to measure volume?**

Chemists use **beakers, flasks, burets and pipets** to measure the volume of liquids.

## What is the best tool to measure liquid volume?

Often in quantitative situations, **volumetric pipettes and volumetric flasks** are preferred, particularly when you are trying to measure a very specific volume. Graduated pipettes are used as well in quantitative situations sometimes.

**What can be used to measure a very small amount of liquid?**

**A pipette** is a dropper for measuring small amounts of liquid, consisting of a glass tube attached to a bulb. When the bulb is depressed and then expands, it draws liquid into the tube.

**How do you measure liquid volume accurately?**

**Volumetric labware** is for measuring liquids with precision. Volumetric flasks, burettes, and pipettes made for measuring small amounts of liquid are the most accurate, with tolerances of less than ±0.02.

### What is the best way to measure volume?

For less defined shapes, volume can be determined by **water displacement**. Volumes of liquids such as water can be readily measured in a graduated cylinder. To use the water displacement method, an object (in this case, a small metal cylinder) is inserted into a graduated cylinder partially filled with water. You may also read,

### What is the formula of volume?

Table 3. Volume Formulas | ||
---|---|---|

Shape | Formula | Variables |

Cube | V=s3 | s is the length of the side. |

Right Rectangular Prism | V=LWH |
L is the length, W is the width and H is the height. |

Prism or Cylinder | V=Ah | A is the area of the base, h is the height. |

### What is used to measure approximate amounts of liquids?

**Graduated Cylinders** are for measurement of an amount of liquid. The volume of liquid can be estimated to the nearest 0.1 mL with practice. Hot Plates can also be used as sources of heat when an open flame is not desirable.

### What are all the liquid measurements?

Unit of Measurement | Imperial System | U.S. System |
---|---|---|

1 cup | Not commonly used | 8 (fluid) oz. |

1 pint | 20 (fluid) oz. | 16 (fluid) oz. |

1 quart | 40 (fluid) oz. | 32 (fluid) oz. |

1 gallon | 160 (fluid) oz. | 128 (fluid) oz. |

### How do you measure a small amount of liquid for cooking?

**Measuring Spoons** can be used for small amounts of liquid OR dry ingredients. The next option is Measuring Cups. Much like the spoons, these can be plastic or metal. These usually come in a fourth of a cup, a third of a cup, a half of a cup, and one cup.

### How do you measure 1 mL of liquid?

- 0.5 ml = ⅛ teaspoon.
- 1 ml = ¼ teaspoon.
- 2 ml = ½ teaspoon.
- 5 ml = 1 teaspoon.
- 15 ml = 1 tablespoon.
- 25 ml = 2 tablespoons.
- 50 ml = 2 fluid ounces = ¼ cup.
- 75 ml = 3 fluid ounces = ⅓ cup.

### What is the volume of a liquid?

The volume of a container is generally understood to be **the capacity of the container**; i.e., the amount of fluid (gas or liquid) that the container could hold, rather than the amount of space the container itself displaces.

### What is the most precise measurement of the volume of this liquid?

**A graduated cylinder** is the most precise for measuring the volume of a liquid.

### What are 2 ways to measure volume?

- Solve for Volume by Space. All physical objects occupy space, and you can find the volume for some of them by measuring their physical dimensions. …
- Solve for Volume by Density and Mass. Density is defined as an object’s mass per a given unit of volume. …
- Solve for Volume by Displacement.

### How do you calculate volume in Litres?

The first thing you need to do is multiply the length by the width by the height. That gives the number of cubic millimetres. To calculate the number of litres, **you then divide that number by a million**. As an example, let’s take a box measuring 406 x 356 x 203mm.
