Collecting Gas

How is a Gas Collected using Upward Delivery?

A gas that is less dense than air can be collected by
upward delivery. Examples of gases that can be
collected by this method are ammonia and hydrogen.

A gas jar is connected by a tube to the flask that
is giving off the gas as shown in the picture below.

Collecting Gas using Upward Delivery

The gas that is less dense than air rises to the top
of the gas jar. The air in the gas jar is
displaced until the gas jar is filled with the collected gas.
