# Acid is added to a beaker containing crushed marble. What effect does stirring this mixture have on the system?

Sep 6, 2017

#### Answer:

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

#### Explanation:

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

$C a C {O}_{3} \left(s\right) + 2 H C l \left(a q\right) \rightarrow C a C {l}_{2} \left(a q\right) + C {O}_{2} \left(g\right) \uparrow$

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