Name/Date/Period-

Using the Laboratory Equipment Page Hyperlink on my website, choose the piece of equipment
that best refers to the following functions. Type your selection in the box provided.

1)    This piece of equipment is helpful to hold and work with liquids. If graduated, it can serve
      to make approximate measurements of liquid volume. This type of equipment is made of
      specialized glass so it can be heated and cooled without breaking.




2)    This piece of equipment is used to heat substances. It can be regulated by changing the
      air and gas mixture.




3)    The function of this piece of equipment is to hold and store liquids. If graduated, it can
      serve to make approximate measurements of volume. One of the main advantages of this
      type of equipment is the fact that the mixing of its contents can be done with little or no
      spillage. This equipment is made of specialized glass so it can be heated and cooled
      without breaking. With this type of equipment a stopper or cover can also be used to
      allow for storage of liquids.




4)    This piece of equipment is specifically designed to make accurate liquid volume
      measurements. The volume is read from the lowest portion of the meniscus of the liquid;
      that is, the lowest portion of the convex dip of the liquid. This equipment is available in a
      number of sizes.




5)    This piece of equipment is used as an alternative to the Bunsen burner.




6)    This piece of equipment is a device that allows a user to extract or deliver small amounts
      of a liquid. Most allow for a "drop at a time" delivery.
7)    This piece of equipment is a medium which would hold a small experiment or investigation.
      It is made of specialized glass so it can be heated and cooled without breaking.




8)    This piece of equipment usually contains distilled water and makes for a convenient
      method to wash out test tubes or pipettes. They can also be used to dispense chemicals
      into test tubes or well plates.




9)    This piece of equipment is obviously designed to hold test tubes. However, it can be used
      to hold pipettes and stirring rods, etc. as well.




10)   This piece of equipment acts as a safety feature in a laboratory. It prevents harmful
      vapors from escaping into the open laboratory environment.




11)   This piece of equipment uses the science of absorbance and transmittance of colored
      liquids to correlate with the solution’s concentration.




12)   This piece of equipment assists in heating and transporting of test tubes.




13)   This piece of equipment is used for accurately measuring solids and liquids to a precise
      amount.




14)   This piece of equipment is used to measure the amount of heat energy generated or lost
      in an experiment.




15)   This piece of equipment is useful in the transporting of extremely cold or hot objects.
16)   This piece of equipment is used as a bracing mechanism in various laboratory setups.




17)   This piece of equipment stabilizes various types of equipment that need to be suspended
      over beakers, flasks, etc.




18)   This piece of equipment acts as a holder for laboratory equipment like suspended cans,
      funnels and such.
