Carbon dioxide test. Montage showing the effect of bubbling carbon dioxide gas through lime water. The lime water is saturated calcium hydroxide solution (Ca(OH)2) which reacts with carbon dioxide (CO2) to precipitate solid calcium carbonate (CaCO3). This turns the lime water cloudy (right) from its initially clear state (left).
