Caption: Volume comparison. Test tube and beaker containing the same volume of a coloured liquid. The differences in perspective and relative depth of the containers can lead some observers to think that the test tube contains more liquid than the beaker. Similar problems with judging the volumes of liquid present are encountered if this set-up is viewed from above.
