Best Answer

CaCO3 + 2CH3COOH = Ca (CH3COO)2 + CO2 + H2O

i.e. produces water, carbon dioxide and calcium acetate

What is the chemical reaction when you mix acetic acid and calcium carbonate?

i am not sure :(

Calcium carbonate and acetic acid?

The acetic acid must contain a little water for the reaction to proceed. Calcium carbonate and acetic acid combine in a neutralization reaction to form water, calcium acetate, and carbon dioxide. CaCO3 + 2CH3COOH = Ca(CH3COO)2 + CO2 + H2O

What is the equation for calcium carbonate reacts with acetic acid?

calcium carbonate + acetic acid --> salt + water + carbon dioxide :)

What is the molecular equation for calcium carbonate and acetic acid?

Calcium Carbonate: CaCO3 Acetic Acid is commonly written as HC2H3O2. It is the active component of vinegar.

Why bubbles come when you add vinegar and crushed chalk?

The reaction between Chalk and Vinegar creates carbon dioxide. Chalk is calcium carbonate and when vinegar is poured on it. It is prepared from water and acetic acid it should fizz up as the oxygen in the acetic acid combines with the calcium carbonate. The foams are carbon dioxide that is formed when the oxygen from the acetic acid links with the carbon from the calcium carbonate.

What is an example of a chemical reaction that occurs quickly?

Ex.: burning of methane, reaction of calcium carbonate with acetic acid, reaction of sodium with water.

I am pretty sure it is a single replacement reaction Hope this helps :)

What causes the chemical reaction of calcium carbonate in an egg and acetic acid?

The reaction is:CaCO3 + 2 CH3COOH = (CH3COO)2Ca + H2O + CO2

What is in vinegar that makes a egg turn soft?

The acetic acid in the vinegar has a chemical reaction with the calcium carbonate in the shell. The calcium carbonate ends up in the foam and bubbles on top of vinegar.

What happens in a reaction between calcium carbonate and acetic acid?

This produces the salt Calcium acetate, ( (CH3COO)2Ca) plus water and carbon dioxide.

What is the reaction of calcium carbonate hydrochloric acid?

magnesium carbonate + hydrochloric acid

Is calcium carbonate soluble in vinegar?

It isn't so much soluble in vinegar as much as it reacts with the acetic acid. Vinegar is a mixture of 5% acetic acid in water. The calcium carbonate, which is insoluble in water, reacts with the acetic acid to produce water, carbon dioxide, and calcium acetate. The calcium acetate is water soluble.

Reaction of acetic acid and barium carbonate?

baking soda

How does vinegar dissolve an egg shell?

It dissolves the shell. Vinegar is dilute acetic acid, and the shell is mostly calcium carbonate. Vinegar has, among other things, a chemical called Acetic Acid (about 3% of it is acetic acid). Egg shells contain calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate in the egg shell reacts with vinegar to form carbon dioxide (can be seen as bubbles in the vinegar). The reaction is: CaCO3+ 2H+ -> Ca+2 + H2O +CO2

Why does produce an carbon dioxide and water in calcium carbonate and acetic acid?

Acetic acid, also known as ethanoic acid, is a mild acid. However, it still displays acidic properties, one of them being... metal carbonate + acid ---> salt + water + carbon dioxide So when calcium carbonate is added to ethanoic acid, the following reaction occurs. CaCO3+2CH3COO-H+ ---> (CH3COO-)2Ca2++H2O+CO2

What is the gas formed when you mix calcium carbonate and vinegar?

Calcium Carbonate and Acetic Acid (vinegar) react to produce Carbonic Acid and Calcium Acetate. Carbonic Acid, however, quickly decomposes into Carbon Dioxide and Water. Therefore, the gas formed in this reaction is CO2 (Carbon Dioxide).

What does the powdering of calcium carbonate increase the speed of its reaction with an acid?

Powdered calcium carbonate has much more surface area, therefore allowing the acid to access the calcium carbonate much more quickly.

What gas was involved when calcium carbonate was added to acetic acid?

The gas carbon dioxide is released.

Why would vinegar dissolve the egg shell?

Eggshells are calcium carbonate. The acetic acid in vinegar attacks the carbonate, releasing carbon dioxide gas and leaving calcium acetate, which is soluble. Other examples of this include calcium deposits from hard water, pearls, and bones. The calcium carbonate in the eggshell has a pH of around 9, which chemically makes it a base. The acetic acid in the vinegar has a pH of around 2.4, which makes it an acid. When the two come in contact, a chemical reaction happens, and the changes happen as listed earlier.
