Textbook Problem

In the process of making lithium metal, Li2CO3 is converted to LiCl. Suggest a way to do this.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The way for the formation of lithium chloride has to be suggested

Concept introduction:

Gas forming reaction: The reaction of acid and metal carbonates which produce carbonic acid. The carbonic acid decomposes which gives water and carbon dioxide.

Explanation

The way for the formation of lithium chloride is gas forming reaction, which is shown below

  Li2CO3(aq)+2HCl(aq)2LiCl(aq)+ CO2(g)+H2O(l)

The given compound is lithium carbonate and hydrochloric acid. In this reaction lithium carbonate reaction with hydrochloric acid to give lithium chloride, carbon dioxide and water
