What Is Added to Hydrochloric Acid to Make Carbon Dioxide?

Answer

In order to make carbon dioxide from hydrochloric acid, you need to add any carbonate to the acid. Any reaction between an acid and a carbonate produces salt, water and carbon dioxide as the only products. Carbonates include limestone, also known as calcium carbonate, potassium carbonate and magnesium carbonate. Carbon dioxide is a very important gas used in the food, oil and chemical industry.

Carbon dioxide is a colourless and odourless gas that is faintly acidic. It is formed by the interaction of one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms. Continuous emissions of CO2 have led to the greenhouse effect; which is the gradual heating of the earth’s surface. It therefore cant not be mixed with hydrochloric acid.

Water has small amounts of carbon dioxide.When it becomes overly saturated with it, carbonic acid is formed. Hence, the wonderful bubbles in soft drinks and candy.

Pretty dumb question, I'd say. But . . . HCl is an acid, and CO2 forms an acid when it dissolves in water . . .
