A beaker is marked with 1mL lines for measuring volume. It is then filled with water such that the bottom of the meniscus rests on the 10 mL mark. What measurement will you record for the water?

Expert Answer

Step 1

When we fill a container with a liquid, it generally forms a lower and an upper meniscus. The reading for the volume of the liquid is done on the basis of the fact whether the liquid is colorless or colored.

Step 2

In case of colorless liquids, the phase boundary is clearly visible and lower meniscus is taken as the volume reading, whereas in case of colored liquids, the phase boundary cannot be detected precisely and thus upper meniscus is taken as the liquid volume.

Step 3
