Question: the main ions are hco3 and ca2 knowing...

Question details

the main ions are HCO3 - and Ca2+ . Knowing that [HCO3 - ] in the lake is 1.05 mM, calculate the mass (in mg) of solid CaCO3 that would remain after completely evaporating 0.25L of water. Assume that any other ions are present in insignificant amounts. The evaporation process will result in HCO3 - → H+ + Ca2+ and Ca2+ + CO3 2- → CaCO3(s).HINT: To figure out the [Ca2+] use a charge balance.
