Flashcard Content Overview

It may seem like there are as many pieces of lab equipment as there are elements on the periodic table. But this flashcard set will help you to easily identify the most common tools you may use as you conduct chemistry experiments. Once you can identify each piece of equipment by sight, you'll save time and effort in the lab. The pieces of equipment covered include a beaker, a burette and an evaporating dish. The fronts of the cards include pictures of the equipment. The backs of the cards include the names and uses of the equipment.
