Answer:

#"CaCO"_3# is a salt called calcium carbonate.

Explanation:

#"CaCO"_3# is a white powder with chalky taste and was most likely the product of #"Ca"("OH")_2# and #"H"_2"CO"_3#

#"Ca"("OH")_2 + "H"_2"CO"_3 -> "CaCO"_3 + "H"_2"O"#

pretty much like any other base and acid, since

#"base + acid = salt and water"#
