4 glasses of liquid must be transfferred into a beaker that has a cylinder shape without any markings. The teacher says that the glass will hold 250mL, but the uncertainty was 10mL in which this was determined. The radius and the height of the beaker was measured within an accuracy of 0.5cm, where
radius = 4 ± 0.1cm
height to the rim= 20 ± 0.5cm
Will the 4 glasses of liquid be poured into the beaker?
Show your work, and explain.
The Attempt at a Solution
find the volume of the beaker using v=pi(r^2), and then compare it to the sum of the 4 glasses?
