Sampling Carbon Dioxide

Students perform an experiment to determine which source of gas (their breath, exhaust from a car, or the air in the classroom) has a greater concentration of carbon dioxide. Students compare the colors of BTB solutions after equal-sized samples of gas were bubbled through them and then measure the percentage of carbon dioxide gas in each of the samples.
