Net Ionic Equations, HW problem M9

Postby Anika Chakrabarti 1A » Sun Oct 06, 2019 11:45 am

In problem M9, it asks to find the net ionic equation for when copper (II) nitrate reacts with sodium hydroxide to produce a precipitate of light blue copper (II) hydroxide. I understand what a net ionic equation is, but I wasn't able to figure out how to get the answer shown in the solutions book. Can someone explain how to find a net ionic equation?

For net ionic reactions, you first need to balance the molecular equation. Then break all of the aqueous compounds into their compounds. Next, indicate the correct charge and number of each ion and write the formula with (aq) after the ions. Then bring down all the compounds with (l), (s), and (g).
