Calcium is a chemical compound and its molecular formula is CaO. Calcium oxide is also called quick lime. When calcium oxide reacts with water calcium hydroxide is formed. The balanced chemical equation for the reaction is;

CaO + H2O ------> Ca(OH)2

Calcium hydroxide is also called slaked lime or hydrated lime. This reaction is an exothermic reaction because a large amount of heat is evolved during this chemical reaction. Moreover, hydrated lime is used in mortar and plaster.
