Why is it necessary to rinse the clean burette before filling it with the unstandardised sodium hydroxide solution?
Before a burette is used, it needs to be cleaned. During the cleaning process, usually, water is introduced into the burette. Be the water clean or not, if the burette is then used without rinsing it with the solution that it is going to be filled with, the result of that analytical exercise will not be precise and accurate.

You want to store your marine battery in the house for the winter do you have to place it on a wooden platform or can you just put it on the concrete floor?
Battery Storage - On Concrete or Not? I have been hearing this argument for over 60 years, and have never seen a legitimate, professional answer. As a result, I have tried it both ways, and have come to my own conclusions: First, a worn out battery or one in bad condition will usually fail during storage regardless of whether on concrete or not. Short term storage [a few days to a week or two] on a concrete slab does not adversely effect an auto...

1970 VW bus wont start and clicks?
Assuming the battery is charged, battery cables in good condition, clamps tight on posts, and good connection at starter and ground, my guess is that the INSIDE of the battery cable clamps, and or outside of posts, need cleaning.
