What are some examples of sedimentary rocks that react with acid?
Carbonates, such as limestone
Limestone is made of Calcium Carbonate.
When Calcium Carbonate reacts with acid the Carbon Dioxide that was used to produce the Carbonate is released. The equation is
The X can be any negative ion such as Chlorine -1
The Carbonate always undergoes a decomposition reaction with an acid resulting in water and Carbon Dioxide
