🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Cummings & McCoy's class at FSU.
To balance the chemical reaction: same number of atoms on both sides
Complete reaction: CaCO3 + C2H5CO2H → Ca(C2H5CO2)2 + CO2 + H2O
Balancing the chemical reaction: (add coefficients)
Calcium propionate is sometimes added to bread to retard spoilage. This compound can be prepared by the reaction of calcium carbonate, CaCO3, with propionic acid, C2H5CO2H, which has properties similar to those of acetic acid. Write the balanced equation for the formation of calcium propionate.
