Answer:

This reaction cannot produce calcium chromate.

Explanation:

This reaction cannot occur. In order for one of the products to be calcium chromate, one of the reactants would have to contain the chromate ion, #"CrO"^(2-)"#.

The actual chemical reaction between calcium nitrate and sodium carbonate produces sodium nitrate and calcium carbonate.

#"Ca(NO"_3)_2" + Na"_2"CO"_3"##rarr##"2NaNO"_3" + CaCO"_3"#
