Chalk is a form of calcium carbonate, having the same chemical composition as ground calcium carbonate, limestone, marble, and precipitated calcium carbonate(PCC). In fact, all of the calcium carbonates listed in the previous sentence have the same crystal form, calcite.

What is calcium carbonate?

Calcium carbonate is an ionic salt, formed from the cationic calcium (II) and the anionic carbonate ion CO32-. It is found naturally in limestone and in seashells. vCalcium carbonate reacts with acids, releasing carbon dioxide: v vCalcium carbonate will react with water that is saturated with carbon dioxide to form the soluble calcium bicarbonate. CaCO3 + CO2 + H2O → Ca(HCO3)2 This reaction is important in the erosion of carbonate rocks, forming caverns, and leads to hard water in many regions. Water with a large amount of dissolved calcium is hard water.
