Item #: AP5950
With the Carbon Dioxide, What a Gas! Chemistry Laboratory Kit, students gain a hands-on understanding of the chemistry of carbon dioxide. Students will generate carbon dioxide gas and observe the properties and reactions of the gas.
This item can only be shipped to schools, museums and science centers
Generate microscale quantities (50–60 mL) of carbon dioxide gas in syringes and observe the properties and reactions of the gas. Perform the classic limewater test for the detection of CO2, observe the acidic nature of the gas, watch the gas undergo a chemical reaction and determine if carbon dioxide supports combustion of a candle flame. Students gain a hands-on understanding of the chemistry of carbon dioxide. Includes Teacher Notes, reproducible student handouts and all necessary chemicals and specialized materials.
Complete for 30 students working in pairs. The Chemistry of Gases Classroom Equipment Kit (Catalog No. AP5951) is needed to perform this lab and is available separately.
