Describe the following chemical reaction giving its balanced equation. Carbon dioxide is passed through lime water.

Carbon Dioxide(CO2) reacts with Lime water [ Ca(OH)2 ] to form a white precipitate of Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) .
When carbon dioxide is passed through lime water, it turns lime water milky due to the formation of calcium carbonate.
Ca(OH)(aq)+CO(aq)→ CaCO(s)↓+H2O (l)

Hope this helps :)
