bottle

bottle (bot´tl)

A container for liquids.
Mariotte b. a stoppered b. with bottom outlet, used as a reservoir for constant infusions; air enters only by bubbling through a tube extending down through the stopper almost to the bottom; a partial vacuum thus supports the variable height of liquid above the air inlet, providing a constant gravity head for outflow.
wash-b. 1. a bottle with a tube passing to the bottom, through which gases are forced into water to purify them; 2. a stoppered bottle with two tubes, one ending above and the other below a fluid, so that air blowing through the short tube forces liquid in a small stream from the free end of the long one; used for washing chemical apparatus.
Woulfe's b. a b. with two or three necks, used in a series, connected with tubes, for working with gases (washing, drying, absorbing, etc.).
