Identify the correct option from the given table which represents the type of reactions occurring in step 1 and step 2.
- When limestone is heated, it absorbs heat (endothermic) and decomposes to form calcium oxide . This is indicated by an orange glow as the limestone is heated.
- The formation of calcium hydroxide, Ca(OH) 2 , i.e, slaked lime, when water is added to lime (CaO), the reaction is exothermic .
So, the correct answer is (c)
