Beakers are used to hold liquids. They cannot measure liquids accurately but they do have graduations which allow you to estimate the volume of liquid. Some beakers, those made of heat resistant glass such as Pyrex, can be heated.
The Conical Flask
The conical flask has the same properties as a beaker but it has a different shape. Because its neck is narrow a delivery tube can be fitted into it.
This means that gases which evaporate when a liquid is heated can be 'directed' to another part of the apparatus.
