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.

Why does chloride add mass

Oct 13th, 2015

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.
