A bulb flask is used as part of a laboratory apparatus in chemistry; some types of bulbous, round flasks are known as Schlenk flasks. These pear-shaped bulbs are equipped with special valves on side only - the valves are used to reduce pressure and to allow gases to escape from the flask.

There are plenty of different flasks that are commonly used in a lab; these range from "fleakers" to "traditional test tubes, to retorts and volumetric flasks. Each flask serves a different purpose and is necessary in its own way. Scientists often assemble labs filled with bulb flasks and other flasks, and then augment these glass containers with as assortment of Bunsen burners, plastic pipettes, funnels, and other common laboratory accessories. High-tech labs will have plenty of other accessories, as well. A typical high school science lab will have a more stripped-down assortment of lab paraphernalia.

If you're looking for fun ways to use a bulb flask in science experiments, you may want to consider dropping by websites devoted to science experiment ideas; there are plenty of these types of websites on the World Wide Web.

Science journals and periodicals are also great ways to learn more about bulb flasks, lab apparatus equipment, experiments, and many other related topics. Popular Mechanics is one of America's premier science and technology-oriented magazines, and it shows off plenty of new inventions and ideas that rely on the use of science.

TV shows on certain networks, such as PBS, also offer education programming that often drifts into the realm of science, including chemistry, physics, and biology.

Funnily enough, Beaker and Bunsen from the Muppet Show are "mad" scientists, and they both named after popular laboratory apparatus equipment. Bunsen has a perfectly round head, and Beaker is shaped almost exactly like an actual glass beaker.
