I need some help with writing reactions. I have the following to write out:

a. the hydration of copper sulfate
b. the reaction of liquid sulfuric acid to form aqueous sulfuric acid
c. the reaction of calcium oxide w/ water to form calcium hydroxide

For a, I know copper sulfate is CuSO4+5H2O (after doing some research), I just don't know what's the reaction.

For b, I think the reaction would be just H2SO4(l) --> H2SO4 (aq), though I could be wrong.

And for c, isn't it CaO + H2O -->CaOH2?

Thank you!

  • Chemistry -

    There other hydrated copper sulfate.

    CuSO4+ xH2O>>CuSO4.xH2O in your pentahydrate, x is 5.


    H2SO4(l)+H2O>>H2SO4(aq)

  • Chemistry -

    On the last, the product is Ca(OH)2
