What is the net ionic equation for the reaction of formic acid, HCOOH, with NH3?

A. H+(aq) + NH3(aq) → NH4+(aq)
B. H+(aq) + OH–(aq) → H2O(l)
C. HCOOH(aq) + NH3(aq) → NH4+(aq) + HCOO–(aq)
D. HCOO–(aq) + H+(aq) + NH3(aq) → NH4HCOO(aq)
E. HCOOH(aq) + NH3(aq) → NH4HCOO(aq)

    NH3(aq) + HCOOH(aq) ==> HCOONH4(aq) ==> HCOO^-(aq) + NH4^+(aq).

    Doesn't that look like C (although I put an extra step in to help in understanding what was going on)?

    Net Ionic Equation: Do it yourself.
