how would I write the chemical equation when sodium hydroxide is mixed with water reacts with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to produce carbonic acid?

I'm thinking this would need at least 2 steps \(\sf NaOH +H_2O+CO_2\rightarrow H_2CO_3+NaOH\rightarrow NaHCO_3+H_2O\)

I think this requires two steps. So first equation is sodium hydroxide mixed with water Since sodium hydroxide is soluble in water it dissociates into ions. \[NaOH(s)+H _{2}O(l)\rightarrow Na ^{+}(aq)+OH ^{-}(aq)+H _{2} O(l)\] It then reacts with carbon dioxide So the 2nd chemical equation is. \[Na ^{+}(aq)+OH ^{-}(aq)+H _{2}O(l)+CO _{2} (g)\rightarrow H _{2}CO _{3}(aq)+Na ^{+}(aq)+OH ^{-}(aq)\]

What do you think @Jhannybean ?

@Photon336 What is your approach to this?

  • Jhannybean
in the last equation you wrote, \(\sf Na ^{+}(aq)+OH ^{-}(aq)+H _{2}O(l)+CO _{2} (g)\rightarrow H _{2}CO _{3}(aq)+Na ^{+}(aq)+OH ^{-}(aq)\) Can ions really behave that way? :o

Yes because it is in aqueous solution. Carbonic acid (H2CO3 is the solvent. Na+ and OH- is the solute.

Oh I see, I wasnt familiar with that method but it makes sense after I looked more into it :D

What was your attempt on this?

At first I had: \(\sf NaOH + H_2O + CO_2 ~\rightarrow ~ H_2CO_3 + ...\) Wasn't too sure how to write out the rest... But i understand a little more now

Not 100% sure. Does it look logical to you?
