No, a triple balance beam will measure the mass of an object but not its volume.

A scientist may use a displacement can or Eureka beaker to measure the volume of an irregular object.

You fill up water ina beaker, measure the volume of the water as it originally was, then drop in an irregulary-shaped object, measure that volume, and subtrect the two. The difference is the volume of the object.

Use a graduated cylinder to precisely measure volume

You would use Volume.

You partly fill a graduated container with water. Measure the volume. Then gently immerse the object in the water and measure the volume again. The difference between the two measures is the volume of the object. However, this will work only for relatively small objects which cannot be damaged by immersion in water. For example, it will not work for measuring the volume of a sugar cube!

To find the volume of an object, we use an overflow cylinder as it gives a measure of the volume of the object by displacing an equal amount of water into the beaker.

you use kilometers to measure the worlds largest thing..Other known as "Mass, Volume, and or Distance.

Measure the volume of the object which is same as the volume of the displaced liquid in which that sinks. And measure the mass of the same object from a weighing machine. then use density = mass/volume

One way that you can measure volume is to multiply the length time the width of the object your trying to find the volume of. we can also use water displacement for a object.

If the object is a regular geometric shape, you use the volume formula. If the object has an irregular shape, use the water displacement process.

use a ruler to measure the lenght of each side of the object

If you want to measure it's volume, place it in a measuring cylinder containing a certain amount of water, and measure the extra units to get the volume of the object

to measure the small amount of volume

You could find the volume of an irregular object by water displacement. You measure the initial volume of water in a beaker, then you place the object in the water. Record the final volume and subtract it from the initial, and there you have the volume of the object. :))

You measure the volume of an irregular object by water displacement. 1)Use a cylinder that is wide enough to take the solid object and fill it with water to an amount that will completely cover the object, but don't put the object in yet. 2) Measure and record the volume of the water. 3)Carefully place the object into the cylinder with the water. Measure and record the new volume in the cylinder. 4)Subtract the volume in Step 2 from the volume in Step 3, and the result is the volume of the irregular solid.

You can use water displacement.

use Archimedis' law- take a known volume of water in a vessel filled upto the brim and immerse the object that you want to measure the volume inside the vessel without giving any pressure and measure the volume of the water overflowed. that will give you the volume of the object(an approximate value)

Immerse the object completely in a liquid (e.g. water) and measure the volume of liquid displaced.

a liters

I would place it in a container full of liquid after measuring the liquid. I would measure the amount of liquid displaced by the object. That amount is equal to the volume of the irregular object if it is fully submerged in the liquid.

because the shape has no correct sides.

depends on how big the object is you can use meters or centimetres or milimeters

One way to measure the volume of an irregular object is to use a graduated cylinder. Fill the cylinder about half-way with water, and measure the volume. Then, place the object in the cylinder and measure the new volume. Subtract the first from the second to find the change in volume of the water. This change in volume is the voume of the object. Unfortunately, this method will not work for all objects as some are to large to fit in a graduated cylinder and some will dissolve in water, but it is very usefull in most situations.

you would use a beaker to measure the volume of a rock smaller than a closed fist. or any other misc. small item
