Test Tube,Burette and other laboratory equipments

For every science student, knowledge of chemistry is inevitable.
In fact, it is one of the core themes of pure science.

Chemistry is a branch of pure science which deals with the study of nature,composition and properties of matter as well as change matter will undergo under any condition.

Chemistry without practicals in the laboratory is never complete and this post introduces you to
