How Well Do You Know Your Chemistry Glassware?

Here a Lytro light field photo of chemistry glassware for you. Good glassware is important for a positive outcome in the lab. Poor glassware will break when exposed to temperature extremes or even while mixing chemicals and may not indicate accurate volume measurements. When you're buying glassware, look for borosilicate glass. This glass becomes brittle with time and use, so it's best to get new glass if you can afford it. It's also important to get the right glassware for your purpose. This image shows a few staples of the chemistry lab. Can you name them?
