What is Downward Displacement of Water?


Question asked by: stephy

Downward displacement of water simply refers to a method used in chemistry for collecting gases.

For instance carbon dioxide is often collected through downward displacement of water.

The water gets displaced, that is pushed out, of where it is by a particular chemical reaction that say produces a gas and the pressure drives away the water, so that's all there is to downward displacement of water.
