Question 12.9 (Sixth Edition)

Postby Steve Magana 2I » Fri Dec 07, 2018 9:08 pm

Question: Which of the following reactions can be classified as reactions between Brønsted acids and bases? For those that can be so classified, identify the acid and the base. (Hint: It may help to write the net ionic equations.)
(a) NH4I(aq) + H2O(l) --> NH3(aq) + H3O(aq) + I(aq)
(b) NH4I(s) --> NH3(g) + HI(g)
(c) CH3COOH(aq) + NH3(aq) --> CH3CONH2(aq) + H2O(l)
(d) NH4I(am) + KNH2(am) --> KI(am) + 2 NH3(l)

Can someone help me understand this question please? Thank you!

I'm actually pretty stumped on this one as well, I'm not exactly sure what the text means by writing the net ionic equations.
