Determine which type of measurement you would most likely use to measure the following items. Choose “length,” “volume,” or “mass” for each item.

• 1.

### A backpack (how it feels when you carry it)

• A.

Length

• B.

Volume

• C.

Mass

C. Mass
Explanation
The given options - length, volume, and mass - are all physical properties that can be used to describe a backpack. However, when considering how a backpack feels when you carry it, the most relevant property is its mass. The mass of the backpack determines how heavy it is, and this is what affects the feeling of carrying it. Therefore, mass is the correct answer in this context.

• A.

Length

• B.

Volume

• C.

Mass

A. Length
Explanation
The given answer, "length," is the most appropriate choice because height is typically measured as a linear distance, which corresponds to length. Height refers to the vertical measurement of an object or person from the base to the top. Therefore, length is the most relevant term among the given options.

### The amount of water in a small fishbowl

• A.

Length

• B.

Volume

• C.

Mass

B. Volume
Explanation
Volume refers to the amount of space occupied by an object or substance. In the context of a fishbowl, volume would be the appropriate measurement to determine the amount of water it can hold. Length and mass are not relevant in this case as they do not directly relate to the capacity of the fishbowl to hold water.

### The width of your desk

• A.

Length

• B.

Volume

• C.

Mass

A. Length
Explanation
The width of your desk refers to the measurement of how wide it is, which is typically represented by the measurement of its length. Width and length are often used interchangeably when describing the dimensions of an object, so in this case, length is the correct answer. Volume and mass, on the other hand, refer to different measurements altogether and do not pertain to the width of a desk.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### The amount of orange juice in your glass

• A.

Length

• B.

Volume

• C.

Mass

B. Volume
Explanation
The correct answer is volume because volume refers to the amount of space that a substance occupies. In this case, the amount of orange juice in your glass is referring to the space it takes up, rather than its length or mass.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Your textbook (how much effort it will take you to pick it up)

• A.

Length

• B.

Volume

• C.

Mass

C. Mass
Explanation
The given correct answer is "mass". This suggests that the textbook's mass is being referred to in the question. The question implies that the effort required to pick up the textbook depends on its mass, rather than its length or volume.
