was asked to consider the solubility for hydrated calcium sulfate in HCl. The principal acid my proffesor had posted for the solution was [ CaSO4(hyrdrated) + HCl <--> H30^+ + Ca^2+ + SO4^2- ]. I guess what I'm asking is what happened to the Cl^- and why isn't it reacting with Ca^2+ to produce CaCl2. ? It's not a spectator ion right??? But if it is why?
