What is Capacity?

The quantity of liquid such as water, milk or juice etc. is called its volume. The amount of any liquid a container can hold is called the capacity of the container. We can measure the volumes of liquids such as milk, petrol, water or kerosene by filling them in a container whose capacity is known to us.

The litre and millilitre are the two common units of capacity.

1000 millilitres (ml) = 1 litre ( l )

Half of 1 litre (l) = 500 ml

  • A millilitre is a very tiny measurement of capacity. For instance, a teaspoon has a volume of approximately 5 ml.
  • A larger unit of capacity is a litre. Your water bottle, for instance, holds roughly 1l.

Big containers will hold more liquid. This represents a larger container capacity. Small containers will hold less liquid. This describes that the container of small capacity.  Example: A pot will hold more water. A glass will hold less water.


NCERT Solutions for Class 3 Mathematics Chapter 11 is extremely helpful for the students to know and learn about the basic concepts related to volume and capacity. These solutions follow a picture driven approach which makes learning more playful and help the students to understand better. This lesson on volume and capacity is also very helpful in our daily activities.Every day, we can measure and consume water. To be hydrated and healthy, we need to drink at least 2 litres of water each day. Use the measurement jug whenever you serve your friends juice or cold beverages.. This will give you a correct picture of the quantity of the juice. Solutions of similar quality are also available for NCERT Solutions Class 6 and NCERT Solutions Class 7. Regular practice of these notes along with solving other problems of similar type will definitely benefit the student from an exam point of view.

3. Write a capacity example using Chapter 11 of Class 3 Math

A juice container has the capacity of 10,000 ml. In the container 1 / 4 th of the juice is filled. Calculate the quantity of juice present in the container.

Solution: The capacity of the container is 10,000 ml. Hence 10,000 ml = 10,000 * 1 / 10,000 = 10 ml. Therefore the container is filled with 1 / 4 th of its capacity which is 1 / 4 th * 10 = 2.5 L.
