Lab-Aids: Make-A-Gas Carbon Dioxide Gas Study Kit - Bilingual English/Spanish

The operation of the Make-A-Gas® Carbon Dioxide Generator is dependent upon the interaction of the activating liquid, dilute hydrochloric acid, with solid calcium carbonate in the charge cartridge. Carbon dioxide is collected in bottles using a plastic trough. After collecting the gas, students perform several activities to study both the physical and chemical characteristics of carbon dioxide. A basic LAB-AIDS® Generator can be used again and again.
Scientific Concepts:
  • Prepare and collect carbon dioxide
  • Chemically identify carbon dioxide gas
  • Establish that carbon dioxide is present i air
  • Determine solubility and density of carbon dioxide
  • Study the combustibility of carbon dioxide gas
  • Investigate "hard water"
  • Discover how water softeners work
  • Consider carbon dioxide and its relationship to living things
