Which mineral bubbles when it comes in contact with hydrochloric acid?

Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) , which goes by the mineral names of marble, limestone, or chalk. The reaction scheme is Hydrochloric Acid + Calcium Carbonate forms Calcium chloride , water and carbon dioxide ( which effervesces (bubbles)). The reaction equation is 2HCl(aq) + CaCO3(s) = CaCl2(aq) + H2O(l) + CO2(g)

Why is there fizzling when you combine sodium carbonate and hydrochloric acid?

The equation for this reaction is: NaCO3 + HCl -----> NaCl + H2O + CO2 CO2 is a gas, so as the reaction proceeds, bubbles of this gas are produced. Thus, the fizzling.

How might a geologist use acid in the field to identify carbonate rocks such as anhydrite and gypsum?

If you put cold dilute Hydrochloric acid on a carbonate rock the acid dissolves the rock and you get bubbles of carbon dioxide in the acid. This reaction will only happen with carbonate rocks.

Do sodium carbonate and hydrochloric acid react vigourously?

Yes, escaping carbon dioxide: due to reaction: acid + carbonate --> salt + carbon dioxide + water fizzing bubbles would occure due to the production of CO2 gas

What is the reaction results of calcium carbonate and vinegar?

it bubbles up

What is the evidence to a reaction when sodium carbonate and hydrochloric acid mix?

what is the conclusion for the results titration (Na2co3) with HCl

What does the reaction between hydrochloric acid and calcium carbonate look like?

It will produce calcium chloride, water and carbon dioxide gas. You will observe bubbles of carbon dioxide gas being produced.

Genardo dropped an eggshell into hydrochloric acid bubbles formed on the shell the shell is made of calcium carbonate what gas was in the bubbles?

Carbon dioxide is released.

What happends when carbonate minerals come into contact with hydrochloric acid?

The mineral fizzes as it releases bubbles of carbon dioxide.

How can you tell if the reaction of calcium carbonate and hydrochloric acid is finished?

First determine what the products are. You should find that one of the products is a gas. So, you can monitor this gas and see when it is stopped being produced (watch for bubbles).

What is used to detect calcium carbonate in minerals?

Acids. The resulting fizz of CO2 bubbles indicates a reaction with a carbonate mineral.

What is produced when hydrochloric acid reacts with calcium carbonate?

Hydrochloric acid reacts with calcium carbonate to produce calcium chloride, carbon dioxide and water. The balanced reaction is shown below: CaCO3 + 2HCl --> CaCl2 + CO2 + H2O This reaction is effervescent since CO2 bubbles will be seen. Also it is an example of a neutralization reaction in which hydrochloric acid is a strong acid and calcium chloride is weak base.
