Experiment: Lengths and Volumes, Basic Equipment
Objective: Measurement of an irregularly shaped body
Caliper's are used for making precise measurements of quite short lengths. They are suitable for finding internal and external dimensions and depths, as demonstrated in the measurement of an irregularly shaped body. However, calculating a body’s volume from the data obtained is comparatively complex. The displacement method is an easier way to determine the volume of an irregularly shaped body.
