Expert Answer:

The format of table for the measurement of volume of an irregular body by the displacement of water is shown below.  Here we have three rows : (a)  for the initial level of water V1, (b)  for the final level  of water V2 on dipping the solid, and (c)  for the volume of solid V = V2 - V1.

Observations: For volume of solid by displacement of water

Least count of measuring cylinder = ...... ml.

Mean volume of solid V = ....cm3.
