Additionally, the graduated cylinder has a narrow and uniform shape, which reduces the chances of errors due to meniscus or spillage. The cylindrical shape also allows for easy reading of the volume at eye level, ensuring accurate measurements. Overall, the graduated cylinder is specifically designed for measuring volume and provides the most reliable and accurate results.

    Correct Answer
    B. Safety goggles
    Explanation
    When working with acids, bases, and open flames, safety goggles are necessary to protect the eyes from potential splashes or spills. Acids and bases can cause severe burns or damage to the eyes, while open flames pose a risk of sparks or hot particles reaching the eyes. Wearing safety goggles creates a barrier between the eyes and these hazardous materials, ensuring safety and preventing any potential injuries. Therefore, safety goggles are essential equipment in such situations.
