The Origin of Limestone

The Origin of Limestone

+

In other words, when liquid water [H 2 O (l)] containing dissolved (or aqueous) CO 2 [CO 2 (aq)] comes in contact with solid limestone [CaCO 3 (s)], the limestone dissolves and the chemical reaction moves to the right. Conversely, for every 100 grams of limestone that precipitate, 44 grams of CO 2 escape the solution and the reaction shifts back to the left. . Little temperature change occurs ...

The Acid Test on Rocks. LIMESTONE, DOLOSTONE, AND MARBLE. Some rocks contain carbonate minerals, and the acid test can be used to help identify them. Limestone is composed almost entirely of calcite and will produce a vigorous fizz with a drop of hydrochloric acid. Dolostone is a rock composed of almost entirely of dolomite. It will produce a very weak fizz when a drop of cold hydrochloric ...
