What is the function of a ring stand?
Ring stands are most commonly used during chemistry experiments to ensure that containers such as beakers, volumetric tubes/flasks, flasks, and test tubes are secured. The design of a ring stand is not complicated. There is a sturdy base and a vertical rod. The glass equipment is then clamped to the rod.
Benefits of using a ring stand
Ring stands are popular because students and scientists no longer need to hold onto the glassware. Bunsen burners can also be placed at the base of a ring stand, allowing a vile to be heated at the exact desired distance from the flame.
