Alright, so I'm doing a lab report, and I have this word equation:

iron (III) nitrate + sodium hydroxide --> iron (III) hydroxide + sodium nitrate

I would like to turn this into a balanced equation, and I have:

Fe(NO3)3(l) + 3NaOH(l) --> Fe(OH)3(s) +3NaNO3(l)

(the letters are for the state of matter, and the '3's before NaOH and before NaNO3 are coefficients)
Is my balanced equation correct?

    yes, balanced.

    Yes, it is balanced; however, I think you may want to show the l as (aq). I presume you are mixing solutions since Fe(NO3)3 and NaOH are solids at room temperature. Dissolving in water they are solutions and that is shown by Fe(NO3)3(aq) and NaOH(aq). On the right, Fe(OH)3(s) and NaNO3(aq)

    Thank you so much! I appreciate it :)
