Unit 2 Chemistry: Day 4 Measuring Volume

For the next few days, we will be investigating some quantitative properties of matter. J

Remember - Matter is anything that has mass and volume.

  • Volume is the amount of space an object takes up.  All matter takes up space.
  • The basic unit of volume in the metric system is the liter.
Can different shapes have the same volume? YES!

Water moves up to the sides of the graduated cylinder.  This means the sides of the liquid are actually higher than the middle of the liquid.  The curve of the liquid is called the meniscus.

When you measure the volume of a liquid, you must look at the bottom of the meniscus and measure from there.

When you use a graduated cylinder to measure volume, make sure you follow these steps:

1)   Make sure the graduated cylinder is on a flatlevel surface. 
2)   Move your head so that your eye is even with the surface of the liquid.
3)   Read the mL mark closest to the bottom of the meniscus.
