What is the correct order of increasing thermal stabilities of-

1.Pottasium Carbonate

2.Magnesium Carbonate

3.Calcium Carbonate

4.Beryllium Carbnate

Expert Answer:

The temperature at which group 2 carbonates start to decompose increases down the group.

Potasium Carbonate is very difficult to decompose.

Beryllium carbonate is so unstable that it does not exist at room temperature.


Temperature at which carbonates starts to decompose(0C)

Magnesium carbonate


Calcium carbonate


Strontium carbonate


Barium carbonate
