What chemical represents CaCO_3?

Mar 26, 2017

${\text{CaCO}}_{3}$ is a salt called calcium carbonate.

Explanation:

${\text{CaCO}}_{3}$ is a white powder with chalky taste and was most likely the product of "Ca"("OH")_2 and ${\text{H"_2"CO}}_{3}$

$\text{Ca"("OH")_2 + "H"_2"CO"_3 -> "CaCO"_3 + "H"_2"O}$

pretty much like any other base and acid, since

$\text{base + acid = salt and water}$
