### Self-Test 14.1A

Question:
Copper reacts with dilute nitric acid to form copper (II) nitrate and the gas nitric oxide, NO. Write the net ionic equation for the reaction.

I would just like to clarify if this is the correct skeletal equation to go about solving the problem:

$Cu(s) + HNO_{3} (aq) --> Cu^{2+} (s) + NO (g)$

Copper (II) nitrate should be $Cu(NO_3)_2$
