A beaker is a simple container for stirring, mixing and heating liquids commonly used in many laboratories. Beakers are generally cylindrical in shape, with a flat bottom. A beaker is like a glass jar, but it has very straight sides, a flat base and a slightly wider top with a spout/lip for pouring. The sides are often marked/graduated to indicate volume/capacity measures. It is used in laboratories for holding or measuring liquids for experiments.
