In this measurement lab we measured the volume of a block of wood, a cylinder, and the classroom. We also determined the thickness of a piece of paper. We used a Vernier caliper to determine the length, width, and height of the block of wood and cylinder, and the thickness of the paper. Then we used a meter stick to measure the length, width, and height of the classroom. Once we calculated the volulme of the items using the LxWxH formula as well as the πr²h formula

Wood block: L:85.7 W:77.6 H:18.8

Formula: LxWxH

Volume: 125,026.16mm³

Tool:Vernier caliper

Cylinder: r:6mm h:105.4

Formula: πr²h

Volume: 11,920.49mm³

Tool:Vernier caliper

Classroom: L:1077cm W:815cm H:382

Formula LxWxH

Volume: 3,354,581,000 cm³

Tool: Meter Stick

Sources of error: The fact that all of the items measured are not 100% smooth and form fitting, makes our calculations slightly different than what a perfect block, cylinder, or classroom is.
