    Equations are derived to calculate volumes in partially filled round bottom and Erlenmeyer flasks by use of simple hand-held calculators. The calculations are made from dimensional measurements of the vessels and the height of the liquid inside the vessels. By making these measurements at the scene of clandestine laboratory seizures and taking representative samples, the excess quantities of materials seized may be taken directly to waste disposal without causing a hazardous materials storage problem
