Fill in the blank: Unlike nitrogen gas, carbon dioxide gas .
- Adissolves easily in water
- Bdoes not dissolve in water
- Cis colorless
A class set up an experiment to prepare carbon dioxide from calcium carbonate.
Fill in the blanks: When carbon dioxide gas is produced, the class it because gaseous carbon dioxide .
- Acan see, has a strong odor
- Bcannot smell, is odorless
- Ccannot see, is odorless
- Dcan smell, has a strong odor
Charlotte takes a lemon and squeezes it over a beaker containing sodium bicarbonate.
Carbon dioxide gas is produced, but Charlotte cannot see it. Explain why.
- ABecause carbon dioxide gas is colorless
- BBecause only a small amount of carbon dioxide gas is produced
- CBecause the carbon dioxide evaporated from the liquid
A cylinder is filled with carbon dioxide gas and placed upside down over a lighted candle.
Fill in the blanks: The candle flame will because carbon dioxide gas .
- Ago out, does not help things to burn
- Bgrow larger, helps things to burn
- Cgo out, is heavier than air
Fill in the blank: You cannot collect carbon dioxide gas using the displacement of water method because carbon dioxide gas .

- Ddoes not dissolve easily in water
Fill in the blank: Unlike oxygen gas, carbon dioxide gas things to burn.
- Bdoes not help
Which of the following is a solution used to test for the presence of carbon dioxide gas?
- ACalcium carbonate
- BMagnesium ribbon
- CSodium bicarbonate
Is carbon dioxide gas heavier or lighter than air?
Consider this diagram.
When a lighted magnesium ribbon comes in contact with carbon dioxide, it produces two substances. Jackson and Natalie are guessing what these substances might be.
Who is correct?
