Card Set Information
Used to hold and heat liquids. Multipurpose and essential in the lab.
can be used for storage, for mixing and for displaying.
used for heating and exposing items to flame. They have many more uses than a hot plate, but do not replace a hot plate.
used in titrations to measure precisely how much liquid is used.
used to heat small quantities to very high temperatures.
used to heat and store liquids. The advantage to the Erlenmeyer Flask is that the bottom is wider than the top so it will heat quicker because of the greater surface area exposed to the heat.
used to heat and evaporate liquids.
used for heating subtances that need to be heated evenly. The bulbed bottom allows the heat to distribute through the liquid more evenly. The Florence Flask is mostly used in distillation experiments.
a piece of eqipment that is used in the lab but is not confined to the lab. The funnel can be used to target liguids into any container so they will not be lost or spilled.
used to crush solids into powders for experiments, usually to better dissolve the solids.
Mortar and Pestle
used for moving small amounts of liquid from place to place. They are usually made of plastic and are disposable
