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?

These practical are important though you may be asked about others too
