1. Write the chemical equation for the reaction of washing soda, Na2CO3, with HCl.

2. Write the chemical equation for the reaction of baking soda, NaHCO3, with HCl.
Express your answer as a balanced chemical equation. Identify all of the phases in your answer.

Expert Answer

Step 1

A chemical equation refers to the symbolic representation of a given chemical reaction in the form of chemical formulae and symbols where the reactant species are written on left hand side of the equation and the product species are written on the right hand side of the reaction.

A balanced chemical equation is an equation in which the number of atoms of the reactant and the product species are equal on both the sides of the chemical equation.

Step 2

The phase of a chemical substance describes its uniform physical and chemical properties. A phase can also be defined as the physically distinctive form of the given matter like liquid, gas or solid.

Step 3

The chemical equation showing the reaction between washing soda and HCl is written as follows:

This equation is not balanced as the numbe...

Na2CO(s) HCl(aq)>NaCl(aq)+CO2(g)+H20(1)
Na2CO, (s)+2HC1( aq)>2N2C1(aq)+CO2 (g)+H20()
