What is the balanced symbol equation of:
If you meant CaCO3 (limestone), then the equation is
CaCO3 + 2HCl ---> CaCl2 + H2O + CO2
hope it helps :)
I hate them...
Lol how do you even do them? I've done my chemistry C1 already but now Ive forgotten how to do them?
You have to make sure that all of the molecules of each element are balanced. So for example in this equation, you have...
CaC03 + HCl ---> CaCl2 + H20 + CO2
Ca = 1 ---> Ca = 1
C = 1 ---> C = 1
O = 3 ---> O = 3 The Ca's, C's and O's are all equally balanced, so you leave them
H = 1 ---> H = 2
Cl = 1 ---> Cl = 2
The H's and Cl's are not balanced so on this equation it is quite easy and you just have to change the amount of HCl, until it is balanced ...
CaC03 + 2HCl ---> CaCl2 + H20 + CO2
If you need any more help just say, I get equations really well :)
This is really good for explaining stuff :-)
