The easy way:

Pour the water into a graduated container, like a graduated cylinder, and read the volume directly.

The hard way:

Calculate the volume of a regularly shaped container (cylindrical or rectangular). Pour the water into the container. Measure the height of the water in the container. Calculate the volume of the unfilled portion of the container. Subtract this volume from the total volume of the container.

How is water displacement used to find the volume of an object?

The basic way is you take the volume of the water before you put the object in the water, then you measure the volume of the water and object you put the in the water and then you subtract the volume of the water by itself from the volume of the water with the object in it. VO=Volume of object VW=Volume of water VWO=Volume of water and object Volume of object = Volume of water and object -(Minus)- Volume of water OR VO=VWO-VW

How can you measure volume using displacement?

The volume of an object can be determined by the displacement of water. By dropping the object into a measuring container of water, where the volume of the water is known, the object's volume can then be calculated by subtracting the volume of the water by the volume of the water and object combined.


Why and how does water displacement find the volume of an object?

The volume of the water displaced is equal to the volume of this object. Measuring the volume of the water displaced we find the volume of the object.


How do you obtain the volume of an irregular solid insoluble in water?

Measure the volume of the water you have. Insert irregular solid. Measure the volume of the water you have now, and subtract the initial water volume from the new water volume. The difference in volumes is the volume of your irregular solid.


Does the volume of sugar and water change when becoming a solution?

The volume does change if the initial values of the volume of sugar and water are looked at separately [(volume of sugar or volume of water becomes volume of sugar + volume of water when combined) as opposed to (volume of sugar + volume of water while separate becomes volume of sugar + volume of water when combined)]. If 2 grams sugar is poured into 2L water, the water will rise (a small bit, but it does rise). The sugar dissolves into the water in pieces too small to see with the naked eye.


How is the volume o f the water displaced by the granite block compare to the volume of the granite block?

The amount of water displaced by the block is the volume of the block. so (volume of water with block in it)-(original volume of water)= volume of block

What does water displacement have to do with volume of a regular solid object?

Volume of a regular solid can be calculated by immersing it fully in a measuring beaker containing water. The volume of the solid will be equal to the volume of the water displaced(volume of water after immersing the solid -(minus) volume of the water before immersing the solid in water).


How do you work out the volume of displaced water from an anchor that lies on the bottom of the ocean?

volume after anchor was in water minus volume of water without anchor in it = the volume of the anchor
