Use a measuring cylinder with water in it. Note down the volume of water in the cylinder, then add the solid. Note down the new volume and subtract the first value from the second to get the volume of the solid.

### Measuring the volume of liquids through eureka can method?

I don't see why measuring the volume of liquids using the Eureka can method. It is an indirect measure -- you displace water or some other fluid to measure a liquid? A direct tool, such as measuring beakers or cylinders with markings, is inexpensive and can measure volume adequately. Eureka cans are more for measuring the volume of solids, especially irregularly-shaped ones. ===================================

### A technique used to calculate the volume of irregularly shaped solids?

To calculate the volume of an irregularly shaped object, a good idea would be to get a bucket full of water and submerge that object into the bucket. Then measure the amount of water that runs over and that should be the volume of your object. For example if you take a sealed bottle of bottle stick it in a bucket filled with water, then let it's volume filll the space and displace the water. The water that is displaced or the water that runs out is the volume of your irregular shape. Get it?
