Investigate the reaction of gases

Investigate the preparation, properties, tests and reactions of the gases hydrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide.

In this practical we will make a sample of each gas and use it to investigate the properties, tests and reactions of each gas.

In order to make each gas we need to have a method of collecting and storing the gas. In the case of all gases we can use the displacement of water out of test-tubes or gas jars to collect the gas – this allows us to see when the test-tube or gas jar is full.

For all experiments, follow the safety advice given by your teacher.
