The equilibrium between carbon dioxide gas and carbonic acid is very important in biology and environmental science.
                      CO2 (aq) + H2O (l) H2CO3 (aq)
            What would be the equilibrium constant expression (Kc) for this reaction?

check_circleExpert Solution

The chemical equation:

                      CO2 (aq) + H2O (l) ---------à  H2CO3 (aq)

Kc = (conc. Of products) n / (con.of reactants)n
