Caption: Seashell reacts with hydrochloric acid. A seashell is put in a test tube with 1M solution of hydrochloric acid. Seashell is mostly calcium carbonate, it reacts with hydrochloric acid to produce carbon dioxide bubbles: CaCO3 + HCl -> CaCl2 + H2O + CO2. This is an example of a double displacement reaction.
