This interactive Java applet provides learners the opportunity to explore concepts of volume, its conservation, and relative capacities of containers. The applet will simulate pouring liquid from one tank (prism, cylinder or cone) into another. Students are asked to predict how high the level will be in the second tank. Instructions and teaching information are included.
