What is Capacity?

We learn about volume and capacity in NCERT Solutions for Class 3 Maths Chapter 11 – Jugs and Mugs. In this lesson, we learn about the measurement of liquids in the form of a story. There is a wedding in Bunny’s family and he has invited many guests to the party. This funny story tells us about measuring liquid. Let us quickly check the basics of the measurements before solving the questions.

The quantity of a liquid such as water, milk or juice etc. is called its volume. Capacity is the amount of any liquid that a container can hold. We measure volumes of liquids such as water, milk, juice, petrol or kerosene with a container whose capacity we know.

The standard units of capacity are litre and millilitre.

1000 millilitres (ml) = 1 litre ( l )

Half of 1 litre (l) = 500 ml

  • A millilitre is a very small unit of capacity. For example, the capacity of a teaspoon is about 5 ml.

  • A litre is a bigger unit of capacity. For example, the capacity of your water bottle is about 1l.

Big containers will hold more liquid. This means the capacity of the container is big. Small containers will hold less liquid. This means that the capacity of the container is small.  Example: A pot will hold more water. A glass will hold less water.

We need measuring containers to measure liquid. Do you see the picture below? This is called a measuring jug. We use this jug to measure any kind of liquid. Do you see the markings on the jug? These markings tell us how much water or liquid we need.

Let us see how we use this in real-life applications through examples.

Jaggu and Bunny had to fill two pots of the same size with juice. Jaggu had a small bottle and Bunny had a big bottle. Jaggu had to fill his bottle 10 times whereas Bunny filled his bottle 5 times only in order to fill the pots. Why do you think so?

This is because Jaggu’s bottle was half the size of Bunny’s bottle.


So what did we learn today? We learnt the measurement of liquid in terms of volume and capacity. We need measuring containers to measure the volume of the liquid. There are many different measuring containers available. You must have seen your mother using measuring containers while cooking.

This lesson is very helpful in our daily activities. We can measure and drink water every day. We should have at least 2l of water every day to keep ourselves healthy. Whenever you offer juice or cold drinks to your friends, you can use the measuring container. This will give you a correct picture of the quantity of the juice.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q1. What do you Understand by Capacity?

Ans. Capacity is the amount of liquid that a container can hold.

Q2. Why do Students Need to Learn Measurements?

Ans. Measurement is a very important aspect of Maths. Every object is measured in terms of weight, mass, capacity, distance and time. Without measurements, we cannot do anything in life. If you are sick, you need to take medicine in the proper amount. If you take more or less medicine, it is not going to benefit you. Measurement is useful when you cook. Without accurate measurements of ingredients, you will not be able to make good and tasty food. When you go to buy vegetables, you should know measurements to accurately weigh the vegetables. Without a clear understanding of capacity, you may not be able to pour 1l of juice in ten glasses for your friends. Hence, learning measurement is so essential in our daily activities.

Ans. NCERT Solutions by Vedantu are theme-based.
