## B. VOLUME

Continued use of the marbles for the practical application is advisable for this exercise . When using the graduated cylinder to find the volume of the marbles directly it is a good idea to put a rubber stopper in the bottom of the cylinder to prevent breakage.

As with finding the mass of marbles repeat the same procedures finding the volume of 1-3-5-7-9 marbles using the graduated cylinder and the overflow can graphing the results of volume of marbles vs number of marbles.

A fun exercise is to prove the the volume of various objects such as a coffee can by using the formula V=XRXRXH. After figuring the volume mathematically, use the graduated cylinder to check the accuracy of your answer. If possible, it is best to use the vernier caliper for your measurements.
