Date 6th September 2009
Tested by GK
Location Sydney, Australia
Test Procedure Measuring Pressure Vessel Volume
Measuring Pressure Vessel Dimensions

Aim

  • To measure the dimensions of a number of bottles.
  • To measure the volume of a number of bottles.

Experiment Setup

The standard procedures were used to measure the dimensions and volume of 8 common bottles. Three different circumferences were measured. The top circumference is measured along the widest part of the bottle above the mid section. The middle circumference is measured along the cylindrical mid section. The bottom circumference is measured along the widest part of the bottle below the mid section.
