Measuring Liquid Volume

Materials

masking tape
marker
6 large test tubes
test-tube rack
10 ml graduated cylinder
3 beakers filled with colored liquid
small funnel

Procedure
1. Using the masking tape and marker, label the test tube A,B,C,D,E,and F.
Place them in the test-tube rack. Be careful not to confuse the test tube.
2. Using the 10 ml graduated cylinder and the funnel, pour 14 ml of the red
liquid into test tube A. (To do this, first pour 10 ml of the liquid into the test tube
and then add 4 ml of liquid.)
3. Rinse the graduated cylinder and funnel between use.
4. Measure 13 ml of the yellow liquid, and pour it into test tube C. Then
measure 13 ml of the blue liquid, and pour it into test tube E.
5. Transfer 4 ml of liquid from test tube C into test tube D. Transfer 7 ml of
liquid from test tube E into test tube D.
6. Measure 4 ml of blue liquid from the beaker, and pour it into test tube F.
Measure 7 ml of red liquid form the beaker, and pour it into test tube F.
7. Transfer 8 ml of liquid from test tube Ato test tube B. Transfer 3 ml of liquid
from test tube C into test tube B.

Collect Date
8. Make a data table in your Science Log, and record the color of liquid in
each test tube
9. Use the graduated cylinder to measure the volume of liquid in each test
tube, and record the volumes in your data.
10. Record your observations in a table of class data prepared by your
teacher. Copy the completed table into your Science Log.

Analysis
11. Did all of the groups report the same colors? Explain why the colors were
the same or different.
12. Why should you not fill the graduated cylinder to the very to?

Vocabulary
1. Matter-is anything that has volume and mass
2. Volume-the amount of space that something occupies or the amount of
space that something contain.
3. Meniscus- The cure at a liquid's surface by which you measure the volume
of the liquid.
4. Mass- the amount of matter that something is made of.
5. Gravity- a force of attraction between object that is due to their mass
6. Weight- a measure of the gravitation force exerted on an object, usually by
the Erath.
7. Newton- the SI unit of force
8. Inertia- the tendency of all objects to resist any change in motion
9. Physical Property- a property of matter that can be observed or measured
without changing the identity of the matter
10. Density- the amount of matter in a given space; mass per unit volume
11. Chemical Property- a property of a substance that is always the same
whether the sample observed is large or small
12. Physical Change- a change that affects one or more physical properties
of a substance; many physical changes are easy to undo
13. Chemical Change- a change that occurs when one or more substances
are changed into entirely new substances with different properties; cannot be
reversed using physical mean.
