This Measurement Worksheet is great for practicing reading graduated cylinders to measure liquid volume. You may select different types of cylinders for the problems. The measurement worksheet will produce twelve problems per page.
The liquid surface is curved (U-shaped) rather than horizontal due to the relatively strong attractive force between water and glass. (The curved surface is called the meniscus.)
As a general rule, the bottom of the meniscus is taken as the liquid level in the cylinder
(and any other liquid volume measuring device).
