Reading a Graduated Cylinder How-To Video

Duration: 7:30
Format: MP4

In this “how-to” video, I address:

-Why we use a graduated cylinder to accurately measure volume, rather than a beaker
-How to determine the scale of a graduated cylinder
-What the meniscus is, and how it affects an accurate reading
-How eye position affects an accurate reading
-Several example problems, for students to practice.

This is a great video for middle school, high school physical science, or chemistry. The video can be used as a refresher for students that miss a lesson, or as practice for students at home.

Use this to share privately (such as Google Classroom) with students. Please do not post publicly on the web.
