What is a catalyst? Give an example. A catalyst is something which speeds up a reaction with out getting used in the reaction itself. Manganese Dioxide.
Describe how you test a gas to see if it is oxygen. A small amount in a test tube should relight a glowing splint.
What are the chemicals you need to make Carbon Dioxide gas? Calcium Carbonate (marble chips) and HCL.
How do you test a gas to see if is Carbon Dioxide? A small amount in a test tube should put out a lighted splint.
