Calculating Volumes

 


The conversion tables below will help to determine volume in existing glass columns, apparatus and spheres. It can also be used to establish tubing or flask sizes necessary when designing volumetric ware. Although exact measurement depends on manufacturer tolerances and glass uniformity, it should give a rough estimate as to the volumes contained.
