If all the dimensions of a one liter bottle are tripled what is the volume of the new bottle?

27 litres If the current volume is calculated by the formula Π multiplied by r2 multiplied by h Then the new volume will be calculated by Π multiplied by (3r)2 multiplied by 3h As (3r)2 = 9(r)2, then the two changes to the formula are that it has been multiplied by 9 and by 3, and that equals a 27-fold increase.

Can a tape measure be used to measure the volume of something?
