I read it over a couple times and found that I answerd my own question. 
The bond ratio is the same, only with a larger bubble you have more 
payload and therefore effectively a higher absorption rate on an 
observable scale. But on an atomic scale it's all the same, wether or 
noth your payload runs out.

I was thinking more along the lines of trapping the C02 in a medium of 
sorts, which could allow water to pass through (Sponge? - No that won't 
work). Also, less water would allow you to observe smaller changes more 
quickly and control concentration. Also, if the experiment could be 
taken so that the observation is spanned across a longer time period you 
might yield more accurate results.
