5.02 - Decomposition Reactions - 5:23



1 reactant --> 2 or more products

metal hydrogen carbonate --> metal carbonate + CO2 + H2O
(the metal can be any of the metals to the left of the aluminum ladder combined with a hydrogen carbonate. The end products are CO2 and H2O along with the metal bonded to the carbonate)

i.e: NaHSO4 --> Na2SO4 + CO2 + H2O
