It's a short piece of cylindrical glass, usually about 12 cm long. It's used for stirring chemicals together. It's useful because glass is inert to most chemicals and won't contaminate anything.

It is a glass rod, which is a little larger than a pencil which has a blob at the end and is used to stir or mix liquids in a lab. Plastic versions are used as cocktail stirrers.

Why should you use a glass stirring rod when pouring liquids?

often when performing experiments in chemistry you are using dangerous chemicals. the purpose of the glass stirring rod is to a) slowly pour in the liquids so that it will not splash on you or your lab partners and b) to ensure that your pour the right amount of liquid into the solution. i.e. titration. However the main reason for the stirring rod is just to ensure safety.

What is a glass stirring rod and a rubber policeman and how are they used?

A stirring rod is a glass rod, typically about 6 inches to 1 foot long and 1/8 to 1/4 inch in diameter that can be used to stir liquids in flasks or beakers.You can also use a stirring rod to help pour liquids without spilling. Because of surface tension, liquids tend to run down an object. So if you hold a glass rod vertically, with one end in the opening of the beaker or flask you are pouring into, and then hold the top end of the glass rod against the rim beaker you are pouring out of, the liquid will run down the rod and not spill. Be careful... it might take a little practice to get the proper technique!Sometimes, an attachment called a rubber policeman added to the end of the stirring rod. It is used to transfer residues of precipitates or solids from the inside or beakers, flasks or other glass surfaces. They are often made from rubber, but plastic ones can also be found.See the Web Links and Related Questions for more information and pictures.


Is glass conductive?

Heat conductive- yes glass will conduct heat, but not very well. A glass stirring rod placed in a flame will distribute the heat to the 'cold' end, but not very quickly. Electrically conductive- No, glass is an excellent insulator.


What is the use of the glass rod in transferring liquid reagents?

The glass stirring rod is used in liquid transfer in order to prevent spillage and facilitate the maximum amount of liquid transferred from one vessel to the next. The liquid's surface tension, or the fact that like molecules will tend to "stick" to each other make the liquid transfer virtually seamless from the lip of one vessel, to the stirring rod, and into the receiving vessel.


Why is a stirring rod made out of glass?

Because, unlike metals or plastics, it is (in most cases) chemically neutral, and thus won't affect your experiment.
