Solution

  1. When limestone is heated, calcium oxide and carbon dioxide gas are formed.
    \[\ce{\underset{\text{carbonate}}{\underset{\text{Calcium}}{CaCO_{3(s)}}} + Heat -> \underset{\text{oxide}}{\underset{\text{Calcium}}{CaO_{(s)}}} + \underset{\text{dioxide}}{\underset{\text{Carbon}}{CO_2↑}}}\]
  2. When carbon dioxide gas is passed through freshly prepared lime water, the solution turns milky due to the formation of calcium carbonate, which is insoluble in water.
    \[\ce{\underset{\text{hydroxide}}{\underset{\text{Calcium}}{Ca(OH)}_{2(aq)}} + \underset{\text{dioxide}}{\underset{\text{Carbon}}{CO_{2(g)}}} -> \underset{\text{carbonate}}{\underset{\text{Calcium}}{CaCO_{3(s)}}} + \underset{\text{Water}}{H2O}_{(l)}}\]
