Likewise, people ask, what is the function of the measuring cylinder?
A graduated cylinder (or measuring cylinder) is a piece of laboratory glassware used to measure the volume of liquids. It is used to accurately measure the volume of chemicals for use in reactions.
why is a graduated cylinder always used for measuring volume? Graduated cylinders are also used to determine displacement, which is a measurement of the change in a volume of water when additional materials are added to it. This means that the volume of solid objects and non-aqueous (lacking water) solutions can be determined using a graduated cylinder.
Just so, how do you use a measuring cylinder accurately?
Always leave the measuring cylinder on a flat surface when you are reading the volume of the liquid it contains. You should move your body downwards so that your eye is on the same horizontal line as the surface of the liquid. DO NOT lift the measuring cylinder to measure the volume of the liquid contained in it!
What is least count of measuring cylinder?
Least count is the minimum value you can measure with the specific device or it is smallest printed increment least count of smallest graduated cylinders is 25 ml. to calculate least count of graduated cylinder you have to divide 100 by in the case of small graduated cylinder. to find L.C you have to divide main
