    metal carbonate ---> metal oxide + carbon dioxide
    eg: magnesium carbonate --> magnesium oxide + carbon dioxide

    It is a thermal decomposition reaction

    So sodium carbonate-> sodium oxide + carbon dioxide?

    Is this the same for all of them?
    So carbonates decompose to carbonate oxide and co2?

    Carbonates are compounds that contain the CO3 2- ion. So in this case magnesium Carbonate is MgCO3. When heated they decompose to form a metal oxide (MgO) and carbon dioxide (CO2)

    Carbonates are molecules containing  {CO_3}^{2-} ions, this could be the standard  CaCO_3 Calcium Carbonate which is limestone, or  {Na_2}CO_3 Sodium Carbonate ect..

    They're heated by simply applying heat to it, either direct heat from holding a Bunsen burner over it, or heating the container which it is in

    No problem
    Can you be a bit more specific to which bit you're referring to?

    What is it asking you to do? Do you have to write an equation for limestone in acid?

    So a carbonate, like CaCO3 (Calcium Carbonate/Limestone) reacts with an acid like HCl, Hydrochloric Acid, to produce a salt,
    CO2 and H2O. So this can be written as the equation:
    CaCO3 + HCl ----> CaCl2 + CO2 + H2O
    So in this case the salt is CaCl2 which can be found by looking at the metal part of the carbonate (the beginning bit, so in this case it's Ca and combining it with the last part of the acid, so Cl
    It's CaCl2 because Calcium has a 2+ charge, Ca2+ and Chlorine has a 1- charge, Cl- meaning that you need 2 Chlorines to balance the charges.

    So limestone is damaged by acid rain because it reacts with it which can be seen in this video

    Looks great except for the last one, Sodium Carbonate would be Na2CO3 as the charge on Sodium is Na+ and Carbonate is CO3 2-, so two Sodium ions are needed to balance the charge.
    So the salt would also be changed, as it is Na+ and Cl- reacting together they just become NaCl (table salt) as their charges cancel out.
