Capacity

Labware is designed to hold liquids, gases, and other substances, and is available in many different capacities. Capacity is the measurement of how much of a substance a container can hold, and is often measured in milliliters (mL) or ounces (oz). While capacity refers to how much substance a container can hold, volume is the amount of space occupied by an object (and is calculated by multiplying its length, width, and height).
