He there amused himself with experiments on carbon dioxide (fixed air).
Find the number of volumes of carbon dioxide in 10,000 volumes of the air.
Carbon dioxide is incombustible, since it is, like water, a product of combustion.
Saturate the residue, when cold, with carbon dioxide and redistil.
Breathing also removes the carbon dioxide, which results from the combustion.
There are also minute quantities of carbon dioxide, aqueous vapour, and ammonia.
Carbon dioxide (CO²) is absorbed by a solution of caustic potash.
This test proves the presence in the jar of a gas, known as carbon dioxide.
This change is due to some extent to the expulsion of the carbon dioxide from the milk.
The carbon dioxide output, however, did not even double in summer.
