Demonstration of how limestone is weathered

The ELI 'Weathering limestone – with my own breath!' is a classroom demonstration of how limestone is weathered. It involves blowing into neutral water to produce a weak acid. Powdered limestone is added to neutralise the acid, as a quick-acting laboratory example of how limestone is weathered in the
natural world.

This activity may be used in Geography or Science lessons.
Many more activities related to all types of weathering may be found on our website.
