# What is the volume of a marble using water displacement?

## What is the volume of a marble using water displacement?

The volume of a marble is measured by water displacement. The initial volume of the water in a graduated cylinder is 12.5 mL. The marble is lowered into the cylinder and the new volume is 14.38 mL.

## How do you find the volume of a marble using displacement?

Water has a density of 1.00 grams per cubic centimeter. So the weight of the displaced water in grams equals the volume of the displaced water in cubic centimeters. Divide the volume found in Step 4 by the number of marbles to get the volume of one marble, if the marbles are all the same size.

**What is the volume of 1 marble?**

The average volume of a glass marble is about 2 cm3.

### What is the volume of 3 marbles?

Bi Sample Metric Measure

Volume of Water Before Adding Marbles (ml) | Volume of Water After Adding Marbles (ml) | Volume of 3 marbles (ml) |
---|---|---|

20ml | 25ml | 5ml |

### What is the method used to determine the volume of marbles?

Use the graduated cylinder and the water displacement method for finding the volume of the marble.

**What is the volume displacement method?**

The displacement method (submersion, or dunking method) can be used to accurately measure the volume of the human body and other oddly shaped objects by measuring the volume of fluid displaced when the object is submerged, as illustrated in the figure below.

## How do you calculate water volume?

Calculating water volume depends on the shape of the vessel containing the water. Volume calculations for a square or rectangular vessel require you know its length, width and depth for entry into the volume equation, V=L_W_D, where L stands for length, W is the width and D represents depth.

## What is the formula for the volume of prisms?

V=Bh

The formula for the volume of a prism is V=Bh , where B is the base area and h is the height. The base of the prism is a rectangle. The length of the rectangle is 9 cm and the width is 7 cm. The area A of a rectangle with length l and width w is A=lw .
