The average pH of precipitation in rural areas is 5.80. Assuming that the pH is controlled by the carbonate system, i.e., no anthropogenic acid gases are present in the atmosphere, calculate the amount of calcium carbonate (mg) dissolved per liter of rainwater. pKa1=6.33, KCO2=3.388e-02
Hint: pCO2=3.162e-04© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 6:19 pm ad1c9bdddf
Solution attaches a Word file to show the calculations for finding the amount of calcium carbonate dissolved in rainwater.
