Homework Statement


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?
