What would you use to most accurately measure out 10 mL of water?
Answer
a 10 mL pipette
a 100 mL graduated cylinder
a 1 mL pipette (used 10 times in a row)
a 100 mL beaker
all of these would be equally accurate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0been a while since I took chemistry but I would say a 1ml pipette since the uncertainty is lower

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but taking it 10 times will certainly increase the uncertainity right';

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I also thought a 10 ml pipette would be better. but it was confusing to me too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0According to one particular brand, actually the 10ml pipette has a better relative accuracy and precision (0.6% and 0.3%) than a 1ml pipetter (0.75/0.5%). So repeating 10 times will definitely increase the worst case error, although one can argue that the error does not increase 10 times, only in the worst case.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since 1ml of water weighs 1 gram, you could weigh it out on a balance if you wanted to.
