hi, can someone give me a reason why a measuring cylinder might be more suitable than a graduated pipette for measuring distilled water, thanks!

tbh a graduated pipette is more accurate, but we often use measuring cylinders for distilled water because it’s easier and when we don’t need to measure water accurately (for example: in a reaction where water is in excess)
