if a compound is heated and loses mass but then is converted to a chloride the mass increased would it be a carbonate and why?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Sorry for delay.
But y is at carbonate ? I don't get it
Sodium /potassium Hydrogen carbonate is also a type of carbonate. May called mild carbonate and less stable than carbonates.
If you further heat carbonates to there decomposition temperature they will further looses CO2 and itself converted into corresponding oxide form.
eg Na2CO3 -----> Na2O. + CO2
Oxides Na2O and K2O are stable than there hydrogen carbonates and carbonates. Hope now you got it.
If you still have some doubts you can ask frankly.
Why does chloride add mass
Chloride is heavy element having mass 35 units therefore when it forms compound i. e. Salt, mass increases. again salts has very high affinity to moisture ( H2O(g)) this also adds to it's mass.
