In this lab experience, students carry out an investigation to create carbon dioxide from sodium bicarbonate and hydrochloric acid and determine the presence of carbon dioxide using two methods: a precipitate reaction and pH universal indicator. Students will draw correlations between excess CO2 and climate change as they observe the temperature in the experimental bottle (with effervescent [carbon] tablets added) will increase at a faster rate than the control bottle with ambient air. They will learn the limitations of small scale climate change experiments.
