    Does anyone know the balanced equation of
    KNO3 - H2CO3 - K2CO3 - HNO3 ?

    Which compounds are reacting? Which are the products?

    2kno3 + h2co3 -> k2co3 + 2hno3

    2kno3 + h2co3 -> k2co3 + 2hno3
    Your balancing may be fine, but potassium nitrate doesn't react with carbonic acid to make nitric acid and potassium carbonate.

    Maybe the other way around, with the carbonic acid instantly converting to carbon dioxide and water.
