Everyday Examples
In ancient Egypt, Rome, and China, soap was made using double displacement. For example, this is the chemical formula for soap in ancient China:
Double Displacement Before Modern Technology
Slaked lime is an example of a double displacement. Slaked lime, calcium hydroxide, can used for white washing walls. It creates a shiny finish on the wall by reacting with the carbon dioxide in the air (Ca(OH)2 + CO2--->CaCO3 + H2O). Calcium hydroxide can also be seen in:
hair relaxers
life support systems
