Chemistry 12th Edition

We know that: a. An acid and a base react together to produce water and a salt. Potassium iodide is a salt, and KOH and HI are bases. $KOH+HI\rightarrow KI+H_2O$ b. We know that acids react with carbonates to produce carbon dioxide gas. HI and $K_2CO_3$ are an acid and a carbonate, respectively. $2HI+K_2CO_3\rightarrow 2KI+CO_2+H_2O$
