What is Sodium Carbonate ?
Sodium carbonate stands for Na2CO3. This sodium carbonate is known by many names. Laundry soda is also known as gray soda and the soda crystals known to most people.
- Molar Mass 105.9888 g/mol
- Density 2.54 g/cm³
- Melting point 851 °C
- Boiling point 1,600 °C
- PH – 7
Sodium Carbonate Balancing Equation:
Ex : 1 Sodium carbonate also emits carbon-dioxide gas when it is heated by any corbanate salt.
Na2CO3 = Na2O + CO2
Ex : 2 Sodium carbonate also forms a salt called sodium chloride when hydrochloric acid is added. With it comes out water and carbon dioxide.
Na2CO3 + HCl → NaCl + CO2 + H2O
Sodium Carbonate Uses:
- Sodium carbonate is widely used to remove paper, glass, rayon fiber and dirt.
2. Sodium carbonate is used extensively in the preparation of soft drinks and soft drinks.
