Limewater….carbon dioxide…indicators. We don’t know too much about these things. Sure, we know a little. Carbon dioxide is exhaled by us and plants need it to grow. Burning fossil fuels produces carbon dioxide.
Indicators…something we observe that confirms to us that something specific is happening. Lime water turns cloudy and forms a precipitate in the presence of carbon dioxide. Blue litmus paper turns red in the presence of an acid. The dog barking at the door and dancing around indicates that you better let the dog out, and quick, to avoid….a pet spill?
