Question: What is carbonic acid classified as?

Carbonic acid is a diprotic acid, and can hence form two types of salts, namely bicarbonates and carbonates. Addition of a small quantity of a base to H2CO3 yields bicarbonate salts whereas addition of a base in excess yields carbonate salts.Carbonic acid is a diprotic acid, and can hence form two types of salts, namely bicarbonates and carbonates.

Is carbonic acid a chemical or physical change?

Carbonic acid is a chemical compound with the chemical formula as H2CO3 and molecular formula as CH2O3. It is an inorganic weak acid, which exists only as a solution. Carbonic acid is also known as acid of air, aerial acid or dihydrogen carbonate. It forms two kinds of salts: carbonates and bicarbonates.

Is carbonic acid an acid or base?

In chemistry, carbonic acid is a dibasic acid with the chemical formula H2CO3. The pure compound decomposes at temperatures greater than ca. −80 °C.

What is pH of carbonic acid?

Carbonic acid, (H2CO3), a compound of the elements hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen. HCO3− + OH− ⇌ CO32− + H2O (fast) Between pH values of 8 and 10, all the above equilibrium reactions are significant.

What is the purpose of carbonic acid?

It plays a crucial role in the carbon cycle – the exchange of carbon dioxide between the atmosphere and the oceans – and in the buffering of blood and other bodily fluids. The short life span of carbonic acid in water has made it extremely difficult to study.
