The chemical properties of Limestone  are as follows:

  1. Limestone is a type of sedimentary rock composed primarily of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). Here are the chemical properties of limestone:

    Acid Decomposition: Limestone undergoes decomposition in the presence of strong acids such as hydrochloric acid (HCl), liberating carbon dioxide (CO2).

    Basicity: Limestone is a basic substance and reacts with acids.

    Water Resistance: Limestone is relatively water-resistant and has a low reactivity with water.

    Thermal Stability: Limestone has high thermal stability and does not decompose at high temperatures.

    Structural Properties: Limestone has a porous structure, making it suitable for use as a construction material.
