Fundamentals J.7b 6th Edition

Postby Hai-Lin Yeh 1J » Thu Dec 06, 2018 10:03 pm

For Question J.7. b, I got the answer:
HNO2(aq) + ZnOH (aq) -> H2O (l) +ZnNO2, but it does not match the answer in the solutions manual. Can someone explain why this is wrong?

Zinc has a charge of +2, so you would need 2 OH- to make the overall charge 0. Once you have Zn(OH)2, balance the equation.
