Carbon Dioxide, What a Gas! Microscale Gas Chemistry—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Prepare carbon dioxide gas, perform the classic limewater test for the detection of carbon dioxide, and observe its acidic nature with the Carbon Dioxide, What a Gas! Microscale Gas Chemistry—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity. Watch the gas undergo a chemical reaction, and determine if carbon dioxide supports combustion of a candle flame.
