Upon heating, calcium carbonate decomposes to produce calcium oxide and carbon dioxide. What is the theoretical yield of #CO_2# if 235.0 g #CaCO_3# is heated?
Approx. 100 g of carbon dioxide gas are evolved.
There is thus a 1:1 molar equivalence of carbonate to carbon dioxide.
So, by reaction stoichiometry,
If conversion is quantitative, there are
