The Metric System Measuring Liquids

This measuring cylinder is graduated in milliliters (mL). What are the major numbered units? How many units is each small line? How many units is each medium line? The Graduated Cylinder

? mL Measure the volume in this graduated cylinder.

? mL Measure the volume in this graduated cylinder.

? mL Measure the volume in this graduated cylinder.

Meniscus When measuring liquids, especially in glass containers, a bubble may form at the top. This bubble is called the meniscus.

The correct way to measure liquids is at the bottom of the curvature of the meniscus with the container held at eye level.

? mL Measure the volume in this graduated cylinder.
