Determining Glassware Accuracy

Determining Glassware Accuracy


What is the difference between graduated cylinders, beakers, and Erlenmeyer flasks? In this interactive activity, you will practice measuring volumes in order to determine the percent error and standard deviation for each piece of lab glassware. Then you will use the results to determine which vessel is the most accurate.
