Chemistry teachers love to have different shaped beakers in their classroom (I guess it
makes the classroom look for impressive). Different shaped beakers result in different
rates the water level rises.
Task: Determine the rate in which the water level rises in a non-cylindrical beaker
both experimentally and theoretically using a beaker borrowed from the science
teacher. (This could also include an odd shaped vase found at home or a unique
shaped mug). Explain any discrepancies between your results.
