There are many different ways you can use the volume
conversion calculator below. If you think it may be able to calculate something
to do with volume, it probably can - give it a go. Here are some suggestions on
the types of problems it can solve:
How many teaspoons are there in a fluid ounce?
You buy 1 quart of milk, a litre or yoghurt and a 5 fluid
ounces of flavouring. What volume do they occupy?
How many gallon buckets will it take to fill your 20 cubic
metre swimming pool?
A recipe calls for 2 cups of milk and all your measuring
cups are in millilitres. How many millilitres do you need?
See below for further
instructions.
There are a few things to be careful of -
don't enter anything except numbers and a single decimal point - The
program is good at finding numbers amongst other stuff, however, it can
be confusing if you put commas in your numbers because whilst
you might think they are part of a number, the calculator
doesn't
the program is highly accurate in percentage terms but not in
absolute terms. Therefore, if you are using lots of significant places
the last places are likely to be incorrect but the size of the error
will be a small portion of the whole number.
be wary of very large numbers because numbers that are too big for
the place the computer provides, are not reported, you just get
incorrect or silly results.
