We will learn basic concept of measurement of capacity.
The amount of water or any liquid that a vessel can hold is called its Capacity.
The larger vessel can hold more water than a smaller vessel.
We can measure capacity of one vessel by using another vessel.
Circle the vessel in each set which holds more water.
Arrange the vessels in the order from smallest to the largest capacity.
We know that capacity means how much a vessel can hold. A cup can be filled with 20 spoons of water means that capacity of cup in 20 spoons.
We can measure the capacity of a vessel by filling it up
with water or any liquid using another vessel.
Colour the number of vessels needed to fill the given vessel. One has been done for you.
Look at these jugs.
How much water do you think will fill up the bigger jug?
Let us start filling up the smaller jug with water from a water tap.
Put the water of smaller jug into the bigger one. Repeat and count how many times you do this till the bigger jug is full of water. If you did this 5 times, then we say that the capacity of bigger jug is 5 times the capacity of smaller jug.
Capacity of a container is the amount of water or some other liquid, like milk, that it can take to be full. Look at the bottle and the jug on the right. We use both of them to store water, milk, etc. |
Which one can hold more water?
Fill the bottle with water using a small mug. We need 2 mugs to fill the bottle. Now fill the jug. We need 6 mugs to fill the jug. So the jug can hold more water than the bottle. |
We say the jug has greater capacity than the bottle.
If your Mom wants to fill your bathtub with water, which container will she use?
