    I've been given some pre-practial questions for a prac I have tomorrow which is a titration, this is one of the questions;

    Write a set of chemical equations, using only the ions which participate in the reaction for the reaction between the acid and carbonate and/or the bicarbonate

    I don't really know how to lay out the answer?
    If it helps I'm using 0.01n HCl to measure the bicarbonate content in two different bottled waters using methyl orange indicator

    if you need more information please just ask, I really need help as I need to do this for tomorrow

    H+ + HCO3- ---> H2CO3

    2H+ + CO3(2-) ---> H2CO3

    Is there something I'm missing?
