Volume

Volume / Volumen

Volume / Volumen The amount of space an object takes up

Volume of Liquids / Volumen de liquidos
Volume / Volumen Volume of Liquids / Volumen de liquidos

When measuring the volume of a liquid, scientists use a unit known as the… / Cuando se mide el volumen de un liquido, los científicos usan una unidad conocida como el … Liter (L). Litro (L)

To measure the volume of smaller liquids, the _________ is used
To measure the volume of smaller liquids, the _________ is used. / Para medir el volumen de pequeñas cantidades de liquido usamos el ___________. Milliliter (mL) / Mililitro

The instrument used to measure the volume of liquids is called the… El instrumento utilizado para medir el volumen de los se llama el Graduated cylinder. / Cilindro graduado

This instrument has markings that are in increments of… Este instrumento tiene marcas que son incrementos de … 1 milliliter (mL)

Meniscus / Menisco The curve in the top surface of water in the graduated cylinder / La curva en el tope de la superficie del agua.

Observing - What is the proper way to read a meniscus
Observing - What is the proper way to read a meniscus? Observando – Cuál es forma correcta de leer el menisco? Read the milliliter marking at the bottom of the curve. / Lee los milimetros que se marcan en el fondo de la curva.

How can the volume of a solid object such as a shoebox be measured
How can the volume of a solid object such as a shoebox be measured? Cómo puede ser medido el volumen de un objeto sólido como una caja de zapato? To measure a solid objects that are regular shaped, a formula for volume can be applied / Para medir un sólido con una forma regular, aplicamos una formula. To measure a rectangular object such as a shoebox, multiply the object’s length, width, and height. / Multiplicando su longitud, por su ancho y su altura.

The SI unit known for measuring solids with a larger volume is known as the…
Cubic meter (m³).

Volume = Length x Width x Height Volumen= Longitud x Ancho x Alto
The formula for calculating the volume of a rectangular object is: La formula para calcular el volumen de un objeto rectangular es: Volume = Length x Width x Height Volumen= Longitud x Ancho x Alto

Why is the unit cm³ used when calculating the volume of a rectangular object? Cómo se usa la unidad del cm³cuando se calcula el volumen de un objeto rectangular? When multiplying the object’s length, width and height, the cm units are also multiplied. / Cuando multiplicamos las longitudes de los objetos, su ancho y su altura, multiplicamos tambien las unidades de los cm. cm x cm x cm = cm³

Volume = Length x Width x Height Volumen= Longitud x Ancho x Alto
Suppose a cereal box is 10 centimeters long, 4 centimeters wide, and 20 centimeters high. What would be the volume of the box? / Supongamos que una caja de cereales tiene una longitud de 10 cm, 4 cm de ancho y 20 cm de altura. Cuál seria el volumen de la caja? Volume = Length x Width x Height Volumen= Longitud x Ancho x Alto Volume = 10 cm x 4 cm x 20 cm Volumen = 10 cm x 4 cm x 20 cm Volume = 800 cm³ Volumen = 800 cm³

 Reading Checkpoint (page 51): What is a cubic meter?
The SI unit used to measure solids with a larger volume A cubic meter is equal to the volume of a cube that measures 1 meter on each side

Volume of Irregular Solids / Volumen de Sólidos Irregulares
Volume / Volumen Volume of Irregular Solids / Volumen de Sólidos Irregulares

How is the volume of an irregular solid such as a rock measured
How is the volume of an irregular solid such as a rock measured? Cómo medimos el volumen de un solido irregular? To measure the volume of an irregular solid, immerse the object in water, and measure how much the water level rises. / Para medir el volumen de un solido irregular lo sumergimos en agua y medimos el aumento del despalzamiento de agua. Water displacement method / Metodo de desplazamiento del agua.

How does the water displacement method work
How does the water displacement method work? Como trabaja el metodo de desplazamiento del agua> Record the volume of water in the graduated cylinder. / Registra el volumen de agua en el cilindro graduado. Carefully place the irregular solid into the water. Record the volume of the water plus the object. Cuidadosamente coloca el sólido irregularen el agua. Registra el volumen del agua mas el objeto. Subtract the volume of the water alone from the volume of the water plus the object. / Restale el volumen del agua sola al volumen del agua mas el objeto.
