I measured the capacity of 5 different glasses in our kitchen. I estimated which had the least and greatest capacity and put them in order. I estimated how many millilitres they could hold. I was surprised at the results when I measured the capacity with a measuring jug. The smallest glass held 150mL and the largest held 475mL. I have emailed a picture.
