# Write a balanced chemical equation for the following. COX2 is passed into a concentrated solution of NaCl, which is saturated with NHX3. - Chemistry

Short Note

Write a balanced chemical equation for the following.

$\ce{CO2}$ is passed into a concentrated solution of NaCl, which is saturated with $\ce{NH3}$.

#### Solution

$\ce{\underset{\text{(Ammonia)}}{2NH3_{(aq)}}+H2O_{(l)} + CO2_{(g)}->\underset{\text{Ammonium carbonate}}{(NH4)2CO3_{(aq)}}}$

$\ce{\underset{\text{Ammonium carbonate}}{(NH4)2CO3_{(aq)}}+H2O_{(l)} + CO2_{(g)}->\underset{\text{Ammonium bicarbonate}}{2NH4HCO3_{(s)}}}$

$\ce{\underset{\text{Ammonium bicarbonate}}{NH4HCO3_{(aq)}} + \underset{\text{From brine solution}}{NaCl_{(aq)}}->\underset{\text{Sodium bicarbonate(precipitate)}}{NaHCO3_{(s)}} + NH4Cl_{(aq)}}$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
