Capacity …will fill you with happiness!

Volume vs. Capacity?  Volume is the amount of space that a 3-dimensional object takes up.  Capacity is the amount of liquid or other pourable substance that a container can hold.

Capacity is the amount of liquid or other pourable substance that a container can hold.

1 Gallon =4 quarts 8 pints 16 cups 1 Quart =2 pints 4 cups 1 liter is a little more than 1 quart

Customary Units of Liquid Measure About how many liters would equal 1 gallon?  Between 3 and 4

Customary and Metric Units of Measure  Liquids such as water, soft drinks, and fuel are often measured in liters (L).  Smaller amounts of liquids are often measured in milliliters (mL).  1 L = 1000 mL

Apply what you learned  Open your math journal to page 335.  Read the top of the page.  What is the difference between the measurement of a cubic centimeter and a milliliter?  How many cubic centimeters will equal 1 mL?

Apply what you learned Complete problems 2, 3 & 4 with a partner.

Think and Complete MJ 336  a meter is used to measure distance  a liter is used to measure liquid capacity  a gram is used to measure weight

Now you need to open to MJ 337  For this assignment, you will need worksheet 119, your scissors, and tape.  Use the grid paper to find the dimensions and volume of the box.  Follow the directions as I demonstrate.
