Here are some of the solved questions on examples on measurement of
capacity to get the idea to measure the capacity of the inside space
that is possessed by a vessel or a container.

Consider the following on examples on measurement of capacity:

**1. ** Express the following in '**ml**'

(i) 19 l

(ii) 21 l 75 ml

(iii) 28 l 350 ml

**Solution:
1 l = 1000 ml**

= 19 x 1000

= 19000 ml

**(ii)** 21 l 75 ml

= 21 x 1000 + 75

= 21000 + 75

= 21075 ml

**(iii)** 28 l 350 ml

= (28 x 1000) ml + 350 ml

= 28000 + 350

= 28350 ml**2. ** Convert the following into** litres** and** millilitres**.

(i) 75000 ml

(ii) 9485 ml

(iii) 23456 ml

**Solution:
1000 ml = 1 l**

= 75000 ml ÷ 1000

= 75 l

**(ii)** 9485 ml

= 9485 ml ÷ 1000

= 9 l 485 ml

**(iii)** 23456 ml

= 23456 ml ÷ 1000

= 23 l 456 ml

**3. ** A water tank contains 2225 litres of water. During the day
975 l 325 ml of water is pumped out from the tank. How much water is
left in the tank?

**Solution:**

Water in the tank = 2225 liters

Water pumped out = 975 liters 325 ml

So, water left =

Therefore water left = 1249 l 675 ml

**4. **A milkman sold 55 l 575 ml of milk on the first day, 40
l 480 ml on the second day and 60 l 825 ml on the third day. What
quantity of milk did he sell during these three days?

**Solution: **

Milk sold on first day =

Milk sold on second day =

Milk sold on third day = +

So, total milk sold =

Therefore total milk sold = 156 l 880 ml

**5. **A Dettol bottle contains 500 ml of Dettol. How much Dettol is contained in 12 dozen such bottles?

**Solution: **

Since one bottle contains Dettol = 500 ml

Therefore, 12 x 12 bottles contain Dettol = 500 ml x 12 x 12

= 500 ml x 144

= 72000 ml

= 72 litres**6. **A drum contains 12 litres 156 ml of varnish. It is supplied to 12 shops equally. How much varnish does each shop get?

**Solution: **

Varnish distributed to 12 shops = 12 l 156 ml

Varnish given to 1 shop = (12 l 156 ml) ÷ 12

= 12156 ml ÷ 12

= 1013 ml

= 1 l 13 ml

Each shop will get varnish = 1 l 13 ml
