Equilibrium in a Syringe: Solubility of CO2—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

When carbon dioxide gas dissolves in water, it forms a weakly acidic solution. The hydrogen ion concentration in solution depends on the amount of dissolved carbon dioxide. In the Equilibrium in a Syringe: Solubility of CO2—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, study the effect of pressure and temperature changes on the solubility of carbon dioxide and the position of equilibrium in this reversible reaction.
