What is a Flat Bottomed Flask and what is it used for?
Flat bottomed flasks are used for the same purposes as round bottomed flasks. The differences are: 1. the flat bottomed flask can stand alone, is more robust but not specifically designed to withstand open flames. 2. the round bottomed flask, also called a Florence or boiling flask, can withstand open flame for long periods, allows for more even heating of its contents, facilitates swirling, and requires supporting apparatus since it cannot stand alone on its spherical bottom.

Asked in Chemistry, Science
What uses does a Erlenmeyer flask have?
An Erlenmeyer flask, commonly known as a conical flask or E-flask, is a widely used type of laboratory flask which features a flat base, a conical body, and a cylindrical neck. The flask is named after the German chemist Emil Erlenmeyer, who created it in 1861. Because the bottom is flat it can stand by itself as opposed to spherical bottom flasks which are also common. The flat bottom makes it easy to put on a stirring device which rotates a magnet in the flask.

What is the use of round bottomed flask?
1. Carrying out chemical reactions in solutions, at high temperatures. 2. Part of a distillation apparatus which contain the liquid to be distilled. Answer: A flask is essentially a bottle. In a labs, glass flasks (Flat bottomed Erlenmeyer or round bottomed Florence) are used for mixing heating and storing solutions. Sometimes they are graduated to show the volume of material that they contain. They occasionally have a side tube so the contents can be placed under a vacuum.
