The easiest way to measure your volume would be as follows: - Put enough water in a bathtub that you could submerge yourself below the surface of the water. - Mark the side of the tub at the level of the water - use a piece of tape or something else that is easily removed from the surface of the tub when you are done. - Get in the tub, submerge, and mark the new level of the surface of the water. - Get out, (: , the smallest detail can be important. - Now fill the tub to the newest mark, using a calibrated container - a gallon jug, for instance. - The volume of water you added to reach the second mark is your volume.
