Measuring: Using the Metric System in Science

A graduated cylinder is used to measure liquid volume. It is the most accurate of the glassware used to measure liquid volume. The milliliter is the unit of measure for liquid volume.

metric ruler

A metric ruler is used to measure length or distance. The unit of measure is a centimeter (cm) or millimeter (mm).

beaker

A beaker is glassware that is used to measure liquid volume. The unit of measure is the milliliter.

triple beam balance

A triple beam balance is a measuring tool that measures mass in grams.

A flask is glassware that is used to measure liquid volume. The unit of measure is the milliliter (ml).
