J5 Net Ionic Equations

Postby Paula Dowdell 1F » Wed Dec 06, 2017 10:50 pm

Hello on J5 c) I am very confused!

Why is the net ionic eq of LiOH + HI -> H2O + LiI equal to OH + H -> 2H2O? I thought it would just be OH + H -> H2O.
Thanks!

What I think the book was trying to do was hydronium ion H30+ and hydroxide ion OH- and that would equal 2H20 I think I remember in class that Dr. Lavelle sometimes said that hydronium was abbreviated to H+.
