What tools can be used for measuring volume?
Different Ways to Find Volume
Liquids have a fixed volume but no fixed shape. Gases have no fixed volume and no fixed shape. Gases expand to fill the space available. They can also be compressed into a very small space.
How will you measure liquid ingredients?
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.
Today they will practice measuring different liquids. They will use a container called a graduated cylinder to measure liquids. Graduated cylinders have numbers on the side that help you determine the volume. Volume is measured in units called liters or fractions of liters called milliliters (ml).
