Textbook Problem

Barium carbonate, BaC0)3, is used in the brick, ceramic, glass, and chemical manufacturing industries. Write a balanced equation that shows what happens when barium carbonate is treated with nitric acid. Give the name of each of the reaction products.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Balanced equation for treating barium carbonate with nitric acid 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 barium carbonate and nitric acid.  In this reaction barium carbonate reaction with nitric acid to give barium nitrate and Carbonic acid.  This Carbonic acid decomposes and forms carbon dioxide and water.

Furthermore, Ba2+and H+ cations exchange the anions (NO3and CO32) to give barium nitrate, carbon dioxide and water.
