Questions  

Which of the following on thermal-decomposition yields a basic as well as an acidic oxide?

a
NH4NO3
b
NaNO3
c
KClO3
d
CaCO3

detailed solution

Correct option is D

When calcium carbonate is heated, calcium oxide and carbon dioxide are produced.
Heat is necessary for the process of thermal breakdown. Thermolysis is another name for it.

When heat is applied, the process causes a compound to split into two or more components. Oxygen is created as a result of this process.

Both acidic and basic oxides are produced using this process. CaCO3 according to thermal degradation,

CaCO3CaO+CO2

CaO Basic oxide.

CO2→ Acidic oxide.
