A Bunsen burner is a simplistic chemistry lab device that can be very important to your studies. It is also a piece of equipment that requires you to handle it very carefully.

Since it uses gas and a flame you want to make sure you are not harmed when you use it. You also have to make certain that the tubing and all other parts of the Bunsen burner are not leaking any air or gas. This could cause a hazard in the lab.
Furthermore, it could be detrimental to your health.

A Bunsen burner is often used to heat test tubes or beakers. You can hold the items over the flames in order to get the liquid or other particles heated inside.
