Measurement of Capacity of Volume

**Category : **3rd Class

The capacity of a container is the maximum quantity of liquid that container cancontain. If the capacity of a container is 1 litre then it means, it can hold the volume1 litre of liquid inside it. The standard unit for the measurement of liquid is litre.

The bigger volume of liquid is measured in litres and smaller volume in millilitre.

One litre is equal to 1000 millilitres. Therefore, one millilitre is thousandths part ofone litre. Litre is denoted by small letter of English alphabet I and millilitre is expressed in ml.

**Addition of Two or More Volume of Liquid**

**Addition by Conversion**

**The following steps are used for the addition of the volume of liquid:**

**Step 1:** Convert the volume into millilitres.

**Step 2: ** Add them by simple addition method.

**Step 3:** Divide the resulting numbers of millilitres by 1000.

**Step 4:** Whole part of the quotient of division is in litres and decimal part is inmillilitres.

**Volume of petrol is 1 L 600 ml and kerosene is 2 L 200 ml. The sum of both the capacity is?**

(a) 3 L 800 ml

(b) 3 L 700 ml

(c) 3 L 600 ml

(d) None of these

(e) All of these

** **

**Answer (a)**

**Explanation **

1 L 600 ml = 1000 ml + 600 ml = 1600 ml and 2 L 200 ml = 2000 ml + 200 ml= 2200 ml. The sum of both the capacity = 1600 ml + 2200 ml = 3800 ml bydividing thousand

**Addition without Conversion**

The following steps are used for the addition of two volume:

**Step 1:**Arrange the volume vertically.

**Step 2:**Add by simple addition method from right.

- One meter is the thousandth part of one kilometre.
- To express the two units in decimal number, place higher unit at left from decimal and lower unit at right from decimal.
- 1 mile = 1.63 km (approx.)
- 1 km = 1000 metres.
- To convert kilometers into metres multiply the number of kilometres by 1,000.
- To convert the kilometres and metres into metres multiply the number of kilometres by 1,000 and then add to the metres.
- Multiply higher unit to obtain lower unit and divide lower unit to obtain higher unit.
