Diagram of modern burette
A burette (also buret) is a vertical cylindrical piece of laboratory glassware with a
volumetric graduation etched permanently on its full length and a precision tap, or stopcock
with plug and bore, on the bottom. The commonly used stopcocks can be a ground-glass
barrel or a plastic plug made of PTFE, depending on the liquid to be carried. It is used to
dispense known amounts of a liquid reagent in experiments for which such precision is
necessary, such as in a volumetric analysis. Burettes are extremely accurate, and have very
small accuracy tolerances.[1]
