Product Description
Cellular Respiration Lab. Gas Exchange in Cellular Respiration: A Qualitative Observation of Carbon Dioxide Release

Suitable for biology and life science students in grades 9 - 12.

Purpose: To show that living organisms perform respiration, and in doing so, take in oxygen and give off carbon dioxide.

Students will use phenol red, an acid/base indicator, to show that acids are produced as a result of the carbon dioxide released during respiration. Limewater (calcium hydroxide) is used as a definitive test for the presence of carbon dioxide.


Please Note: This lab is sold in a complete bundled unit plan and can be viewed here: Cellular Respiration Complete Unit Plan Bundle


Materials Needed:
Glass Beads, 13 test tubes, Phenol Red Indicator, Boiled yeast solution, Unboiled yeast solution, Dry seeds, Sprouted seeds, Cork or stopper to fit test tubes, Calcium hydroxide, Dilute Hydrochloric acid, Carbonated water, Drinking Straws.
