Well, this is an observation for an experiment that you have done recently, and we have not.....


I would assume that stirring the slurry would tend to break up the chunks of marble, and release carbon dioxide gas.....

#CaCO_3(s) + 2HCl(aq) rarr CaCl_2(aq) + CO_2(g)uarr#

Anyway, if you haven't done the experiment yet, please closely observe what occurs, and record the results contemporaneously.
