A housewife wanted her house to be white washed. She bought 10 kg of quicklime from the market and dissolved in 30 L of water. On adding lime to water, she corresponding equation and name the product formed.
A suspension of slaked lime (also called calcium hydroxide) is formed when water is added to quicklime.
Since, the reaction is highly exothermic, the solution started boiling although it was not being heated. The suspension of slaked lime is allowed to cool for some time, preferably overnight.
It is then decanted and the liquid obtained is used for white washing.
