Textbook Problem

One way to remove the calcium carbonate residue in a tea-kettle is to add vinegar (a dilute solution of acetic acid). Write a chemical equation to explain this process. What kind of a reaction is this?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The kind of given reaction and its chemical equation should be determined.

Concept introduction:

  • For chemical reaction balanced chemical reaction equation written in accordance with the Law of conservation of mass.
  • Law of conservation of mass states that for a reaction total mass of the reactant and product must be equal.
  • There are different and varieties of reactions are there in chemistry. The kind of reaction is determined mainly on the basis of product produced from a reaction. If in a reaction gas is formed as a product then it can be referred to as a gas forming reaction.
Explanation

Given,

To remove the calcium carbonate residue in a tea kettle is to add vinegar.

After adding vinegar calcium carbonate residue is converted in to a soluble substance along with water and carbon monoxide.

The equation of the above reaction is,

CaCO3(s)+2CH3CO2H(aq)Ca(
