Beside this, does calcium carbonate conduct electricity in water?
As solids, they do not conductelectricity, but do so both when fused (melted) or inwater solution. However, not all ionic compounds arewater soluble, e.g, calcium carbonate. Molecularsolids are composed of molecules held together by relatively weakforces.
Furthermore, is calcium carbonate a good conductor of electricity? As a solid, calcium carbonate is a poorconductor compared to metals. In solution as ions it is asgood a conductor as most salt solutions.
In respect to this, what happens when calcium carbonate is mixed with water?
Calcium carbonate will react with waterthat is saturated with carbon dioxide to form the solublecalcium bicarbonate. This reaction is important in theerosion of carbonate rock, forming caverns, and leads tohard water in many regions.
Why is CaCO3 insoluble in water?
Because calcium carbonate does not dissolve inwater, students should realize that not all ionic substancesdissolve in water. Explain that on the molecular level, theions that make up calcium carbonate are attracted sostrongly to each other that the attraction by watermolecules cannot pull them apart.
