diagram of modern burette

A burette is a vertical tube-like instrument, used to measure and separate known amounts of liquids in laboratories. Burettes are very precise and one can measure the volume of a fluid with the precision of ±0.05 mL with them.


Francois Antoine Henri Descroizilles developed the first burette on 1791.[1] Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac invented a more complete burette later.
