Answer:

You have not given us all of the question.........

Explanation:

We know that we can decarboxlyate calcium carbonate with fierce heat.......

#CaCO_3(s) + Delta rarr CaO(s) + CO_2(g)uarr#

We have a #25*g# initial mass of #"calcium carbonate"# and #"sodium hydroxide"#. We need a FINAL mass that represents the mass of #"calcium oxide"# and #"sodium hydroxide"# to address your question. The LOST mass represents what?
