Textbook Problem

The mineral rhodothrosite is manganese(Ⅱ) carbonate. Write an overall, balanced equation for the reaction of the mineral with hydrochloric acid, and name the products.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Name of the product and the balanced equation for the given compound should be written.

Concept introduction:

The law of conservation of mass states that no atoms can be created or destroyed in a chemical reaction, therefore, the number of atoms present in the reactants is equal to the number of atoms present in the products.

Explanation

The given compound is Manganese (II) carbonate and hydrochloric acid.  In this reaction Manganese (II) carbonate reaction with hydrochloric acid to give Manganese (II) chloride and Carbonic acid.  This Carbonic acid decomposes and forms carbon dioxide and water.

Furthermore, Mn2+and H+ cations exchange the anions (Cl-and CO32-) to give Manganese (II) chloride, carbon dioxide and water.
