Balanced Chemical Equation – Solution
2HC2H3O2 + Ca(OH)2 → Ca(C2H3O2)2 + 2H2O
The coefficients show the number of particles (atoms or molecules), and the indices show the number of atoms that make up the molecule. New substances are formed as a result of the rearrangement of the original atoms. As a result of a chemical reaction, atoms of chemical elements do not disappear anywhere and new ones do not appear, their number remains unchanged – this follows from the law of conservation of mass of substances.
Chemical Reaction Information
Acetic Acid + Portlandite = Calcium Acetate + Water
Double Displacement (Metathesis)
Substances that react are called starting materials or reactants. The substances that form as a result are called reaction products.
Ca(OH)2 – Calcium hydroxide
Ca(C2H3O2)2 – Calcium acetate
- Other names: Acetate of lime.

H2O – Water, oxidane
- Other names: Water (H2O), Hydrogen oxide, Hydrogen hydroxide.
- Appearance: White crystalline solid, almost colorless liquid with a hint of blue, colorless gas.
|HC2H3O2 + Ca(OH)2 = Ca(C2H3O2)2 + HOH|
|HC2H3O2 + Ca(OH)2 = (CH3CO2)2Ca + H2O|
|Ca(C2H3O2)2 + H2O = C2H4O2 + Ca(OH)2|
|Ca(C2H3O2)2 + H2O = Ca(OH)2 + HC2H3O2|
|Ca(C2H3O2)2 + H2O = CaO + HC2H3O2|
|Ca(C2H3O2)2 + H2O = HC2H3O2 + Ca(OH)2|
|Ca(C2H3O2)2 + H2O = CaO + H(C2H3O2)|
|HC2H3O2 + Ca(OH)2 = H2O + C4H6O4Ca|
