Marble chips are made up of CaCO3. When marble chips are dissolved in HCl, CO2 gas is evolved. Hence A is CO2. When this gas is passed through lime water, it forms CaCO3 which is a white precipitate. Hence B is CaCO3
When carbon dioxide is passed through lime water, a white precipitate of calcium carbonate is formed.
If excess CO2 is added, the following reaction takes place:
CaCO3 + H2O + CO2 → Ca (HCO3)2
The product formed Ca (HCO3)2 is colorless and is soluble in the solution. Hence C is Ca (HCO3)2.
