  • Beaker
  • Glass Tumbler
  • Conical Tumbler
  • Flat bottomed Flask



  • Pour 1 litre of water in beaker, water takes shape of beaker

  • Now we pour same water into glass tumbler , water takes shape of glass tumbler

  • Similarly if we put it into conical tumbler or flat bottomed tumbler, it takes shape of the tumbler

Now we pour it back into original tumbler, We notice that it takes shape of original tumbler
