Answer:

You will have to rephrase this question...........

Explanation:

#CaC_2# dissolves in water to give #Ca(OH)_2# and 1 equiv acetylene gas...........

#CaC_2(s) + 2H_2O(l) rarr Ca(OH)_2(aq) +HC-=CHuarr#

The acetylene gas will likely bubble out of solution. The volume of the gas can be approached given an ambient pressure and an ambient temperature. Over to you.
