Is calcium carbonate soluble in acids?

It reacts with acid but not soluble in water.

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.

How do descalers remove limescale?

Limescale is basically calcium carbonate or similar. Descaler is basically acid. The acid reacts with the calcium carbonate forming a more soluble salt which easily washes away.

Which type of acid has calcium carbonate?

No acid contains calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is its own compound that is a base, not an acid. However, the erosion and deposition of calcium carbonate in nature is heavily influenced by carbonic acid.

What dissolve chalk?

Chalk is primarily composed calcium carbonate, CaCO3. Carbonates are typically not very soluble in pure water or basic solutions, but tend to be very soluble in acidic solutions. One household item that would be useful for cleaning up chalk would be white vinegar, which is acetic acid, HCH3CO2. The acetic acid would react with the calcium carbonate to produce calcium acetate, water and carbon dioxide. CaCO3 + 2HCH3CO2 > Ca(CH3CO2)2 + H2O + CO2 The calcium acetate is soluble in water, so it would not be visible.

How is Calcium carbonate used to neutralise acid emissions from power stations?

The calcium carbonate reacts with the acid as per any carbonate: Calcium Carbonate + Acid -> Calcium Salt + Water + Carbon Dioxide

How calcium carbonate can be removed from the mixture?

Maybe by dissolving it in hydrochloric acid, if the other stuff is not soluble in it, this is unknown to me.

What does acid rain make with calcium carbonate?

dissolved calcium carbonate?

What are the products of sulfuric acid and calcium carbonate?

Sulphuric Acid + calcium Carbonate = Calcium Sulphate + Carbon Dioxide + Water

What is the word equation for calcium carbonate and sulfuric acid?

calcium carbonate + sulphuric acid ----> calcium sulphate + carbon dioxide

Are marble statues affected by acid rain?

Yes, pretty sure it erodes the marble as it contains calcium carbonate which is converted to calcium sulfate which is soluble in water (by sulfuric acid)

Why does calcium carbonate react to acid rain?

sulfuric acid in the rain water reacts with calcium carbonate.
