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

Used to stir, mix and heat liquids during practicals.
Used for holding reactants
3.Test tube Rack
Used for keeping the test tubes.
It is used during filtration to draw base with the mouth.
Glass tube with graduation marks and tap at one end, used to pour acid during titration.
6.Mortar and Pestle
For grinding coarse solids into fine powder.
For measuring the mass of small quantity of solid.
Used in storing and drying a solid.
A circular shallow dish with a flat bottom, used in keep solid for drying.
Used to measure the volume of a liquid.
