Description of the Experience
I could not understand why the reaction of carbonic acid with Ca(OH)2 is reversible and with Nа2О and Мg it is not. I asked the teacher, who try to explain that the reaction between calcium hydroxide (strong base) and carbonic acid (a weak acid) is reversible, because when you make a reaction between different in strength acid and base, the salt that is formed participates in the opposite of the neutralization reaction called hydrolysis. In general chemistry reactions are reversible and irreversible. But this did not mean anything to me.


Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
