Measuring Volume

One liter of water weighs one kilogram.
One cubic meter of water weighs one tonne.
One milliliter of water weighs one gram.
One cubic millimeter of water weighs one gram.

Give the weight of water in these containers.


Solve these word problems!

1. An aquarium has dimensions of 1.2 m, 80 cm and 50 cm. What weight of water will it hold?

2. The local dam measures 31 km x 2 km x 74 m. How many tonnes of water could the dam hold?

3. 1 m3 of a liquid chemical costs $4.38. How much would it cost to fill a container 3.4 m x 2.2 m x 1.4 m?

4. One liter of ice cream costs $3.23. How much would it cost to buy 256 liters for an ice cream parlor?

5. Ten ice creams can be made from 1 liter of ice cream. Each ice cream costs $1.20.
How many ice creams can I make from the 256 liters? How much money will I get from the sale of the ice creams?
