    For the GCSE chemistry C1 Edexcel paper how do you answer the questions where you have to describe what you would see in reactions for e.g. copper carbonate + sulfuric acid. I havent been taught about this. Thanks

    well as you know (or should), an Acid and Carbonate always makes a salt, water, and more importantly CO2.
    so you would say a gas is given off (CO2)
    it important to know that descibing questions need no scientific resonaning- just need to say what you would see, hear, or smell

    You need to say what you will see
    .It will fizz ( carbon dioxide gas is formed)
    . The product will be copper sulfate( which is soluble)
    . A solution is formed ( acid+ Carbonate-water + carbon dioxide+ salt

    Surely you would've done a practical on it?
    pretty much all you ned to know are the general equations for all this stuff
    for example
    Carbonate+Acid--->Salt+CO2+Water
    the if it asks you what you would see, recall the equation and think about it logically.
    So if CO2 is produced then you'd see bubbling right?
