Is a pipette more accurate than a buret?

  1. Jan 28, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    1. If a pipette is more accurate than a buret, why or why not.

    Is it because a pipette is narrower, allowing for more accurate measurement?

    2. What procedural differences between recommended practice and student usage do you think would result in a student's data not supporting this statement?

    If a student was careless with their measurement, obviously this would have an effect, but what else could be a factor?

    2. Relevant equations


    Thank you for your help.
    3. The attempt at a solution
