Write the molecular equation and the net ionic equation for each of the following aqueous reactions.

Ca(NO3)2 + K2CO3

FeSO4 + NaCl

NiCl2 + NaBr

  • Chemistry - ,

    Ca(NO3)2 + K2CO3
    I assume Ca(NO3)2 is (aq) and K2CO3 is (aq); technically the dry materials won't react.

    Write the molecular equation.
    Ca(NO3)2 + K2CO3 ==> CaCO3(s) + 2KNO3

    The reaction takes place because CaCO3 is insoluble. To change to an ionic equation, convert everything into ions EXCEPT
    a. gases
    b. insoluble materials.
    c. weak electrolytes.

    Ca^+2 + 2NO3^- + 2K^+ + CO3^-2 ==> CaCO3 + 2K^+ + 2NO3^-

    Now cancel common ions that appear on both sides; i.e., 2NO3^- and 2K^+ and the NET ionic equation is
    Ca^+2(aq) + CO3^-2(aq) ==> CaCO3(s)

    The others are done the same way IF they react.
