Best Answer

The volume of a cylinder is Pi * radius^2 * height. 1 Gallon = 3.7854 Liters. 1 Liter is 1000 cm^3. So get the radius and height in cm, then use the formula to get the volume in cm^3, then convert to gallons or liters.

What should be used to measure liquid volumes?

The normal method of measuring the volume of a liquid is with a graduated cylinder. If you pour the liquid into a graduated cylinder, you can then read the volume off of the markings (or graduations) on the cylinder. If the amount of liquid is extremely large (let's say, a thousand gallons) then you need a different technique. Perhaps a graduated swimming pool.

What is the measure unit of volume?

You just put a units after the volume that you found. Also, weight(lbs, oz, ect.) count as value and so to liquid measurements(gal, pint, ect.) When you are doing weight or liquid measurements, just use the unit. For example, if you find the amount of liquid inside a cylinder, and the answer is 90 gallons, you just use gallons, nothing else

What is more precise 6 gallons or 23 quarts?

That depends - if the amount of liquid in a container is closer to 6 gallons, then 6 gallons is more precise. If the amount of liquid in a container is closer to 23 quarts, then 23 quarts is more precise.

Undetermined. Centimeters are a measurement of linear distance. Gallons are a measure of volume of a liquid. If you have a container that has 3 linear dimensions then you can convert that to the amount of liquid in gallons it can hold.

The volume of a liquid is normally measured by means of a graduated cylinder.

Would it be more accurate to measure the amount of water that a container can hold by using one measurement with a large graduated cylinder or two measurements with a smaller graduated cylinder?

If you measure properly, the amount of water does not change. Measurement with whatever graduated cylinder you choose will not alter the amount of liquid measured. Most people choose to measure once with a larger one, but if the amount of liquid falls between the measurement lines, you can measure the "leftover" with a smaller cylinder and find the exact answer.

What is the smallest amount of the liquid your graduated cylinder can measure?

How do you calculate the volume of an irregular object?

The volume of a solid object such as a rock or pebble can be determined by submerging it in a liquid in a graduated cylinder or other container. The difference in the volume of the liquid is the volume of the object.
