# How do you read a 10mL graduated cylinder?

**10mL graduated cylinder**, for example, the smallest

**graduation**is tenth of a milliliter (0.1mL). That means when you

**read**the volume, you can estimate to the hundredths place (0.01mL). Use the bottom of the meniscus to determine the volume in the

**10mL graduated cylinder**.

Similarly, how do you read a graduated cylinder?

To **correctly read a graduated cylinder**, the surface at the center of the meniscus must be **read**, not the top of the ring of liquid clinging to the wall of the **graduated cylinder**. For most liquids, this "center" will be the lowest point of the meniscus.

Also, what is a 10 mL graduated cylinder used for? A **10 ml graduated cylinder** can be **used in** chemistry labs for **measuring** liquids to an accuracy of 0.1**ml** (0.1cc) at the **10ml** mark based on its calibration error of 1% at full scale. It is the most economical way to measure a **10ml** volume; more accurate ways include pipets and burets.

Also Know, what is the volume of a 10 mL graduated cylinder?

In the **10**-**mL graduated cylinder**, first subtract 8 **mL** - 6 **mL** = 2 **mL**. Next, count that there are **ten** intervals between the labeled graduations. Therefore, the scale increment is 2 **mL**/**10** graduations = 0.2 **mL**/**graduation**.

What is the scale of a graduated cylinder?

The **graduated cylinder scale** is a ruled **scale**, and it is read like a ruler. The **scale** is read to one digit beyond the smallest **scale** division by estimating (interpolating) between these divisions. With a 50-mL **graduated cylinder**, read and record the volume to the nearest 0.1 mL.
