Lesson Plan: Water in Tube

his lesson develops the water required to fill the glass 16x100mm test tube. Water is a liquid and takes on the same shape the inside of its container. The inside diameter is 14mm. The Fillet radius is 7mm. In a laboratory, the working sample volume of water cannot be the same as the overall height of the test tube (the sample would spill during human or robotic intervention). Create the water as a separate part to fill the glass test tube. Determine the volume of water and its height from the top of the tube.
