How to Measure a Beaker/Cylinder

How to Measure a Beaker/Cylinder - How it Works - Video

Example 1

Example 1:

To the volume of the liquid, first we need to find the amount between each hatch mark. In order to do that we need to find the amount of hatch marks from one number to another. In this case, we found the spaces between the number and there are 10 spaces. Now we have to subtract the two known numbers, 200 and 300 which equals 100, and divide 100 by 10 sections, which is 10. So each hatch mark is counting by 10. We count up from 200 since it is the closest known number to get the answer 240 ml.

Example 2

Example 2:

To the volume of the liquid, first we need to find the amount between each hatch mark. In order to do that we need to find the amount of hatch marks from one number to another. In this case, we found the spaces between the number and there are 10 spaces. Now we have to subtract the two known numbers, 11 and 12 which equals 1, and divide 1 by 10 sections, which is 0.1. So each hatch mark is counting by 0.1. We count up from 11 since it is the closest known number to get the answer 11.4 ml.

Example 3

Example 3:

To the volume of the liquid, first we need to find the amount between each hatch mark. In order to do that we need to find the amount of hatch marks from one number to another. In this case, we found the spaces between the number and there are 4 spaces. Now we have to subtract the two known numbers, 200 and 300 which equals 100, and divide 100 by 4 sections, which is 25. So each hatch mark is counting by 25. We count down from 300 since it is the closest known number to get the answer 275 ml.

Example 4

Example 4:

To the volume of the liquid, first we need to find the amount between each hatch mark. In order to do that we need to find the amount of hatch marks from one number to another. In this case, we found the spaces between the number and there are 10 spaces. Now we have to subtract the two known numbers, 100 and 300 which equals 200, and divide 200 by 10 sections, which is 20. So each hatch mark is counting by 20. We count down from 300 since it is the closest known number to get the answer 260 ml.
