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

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

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

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

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

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.

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 :)

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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).

Calcium carbonate + nitric acid --> Calcium nitrate (salt) + carbon dioxide (gas) + water

Calcium carbonate + sulphuric acid -----> calcium sulphate + carbon dioxide + water...Hope that helps!!!

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

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.

aluminum sulfate- acetic acid- calcium carbonate- boric acid- water

User Avatar

it bubbles up. and at that point the calcium carbonate under goes a change in color

how many tums tablets each 250mg calcium carbonate would it take to neutralize a quart of vinegar 0.83m acetic acid
