Net ionic equations (12.9)

Postby Tim Foster 2A » Tue Dec 05, 2017 5:45 pm

When writing net ionic equations, do solid (s) or liquid (l) compounds get split into ions?
If not, why is the Bronsted Acid in the equation NH4I (s) + H20 (l) ---> NH3 (aq) + H3O+ (aq) + I- (aq)
considered to be NH4+, instead of NH4I

I was also unsure of this problem. If it weren't stated in the problem would there be any way to infer these compounds are ionic?
