# What is the chemical equation for the decomposition of calcium oxide?

Mar 17, 2016

$\text{CaO}$ does not decompose easily.

#### Explanation:

Calcium oxide is chemically and physically stable at high temperatures.

Maybe you are looking for the decomposition of ${\text{CaCO}}_{3}$ to $\text{CaO}$?

That would be

${\text{CaCO"_3 -> "CaO" + "CO}}_{2}$
