(i) Name the products formed when sodium hydrogen carbonate is heated.
(ii) Write the chemical equation for the reaction involved in the above.
(i) When sodium hydrogen carbonate is heated, sodium carbonate (Na2CO3), water (H2O), and carbon dioxide (CO2) gas are formed.
(ii) The chemical equation involved in the above reaction can be represented as:
2NaHCO3 —→ Na2CO3 + H2O + CO2
Sodium hydrogen Sodium Water Carbon
carbonate carbonate dioxide
