Write the balanced net ionic equation. Label species as solids liquids gase aqueous.
HNO3(aq) + Ba(OH)2(aq) --->
I don't understand the steps? And how to balance it?
well the easy way to balance is to see how many of each individual chemicals u have on the left side of the equation. so you have 5 H's 3 N's and 5 O's and 1 Ba(include any subscripts if there are any) But the number at the end of the equation is for each element also switch one element for the other (trade places) so on the balanced side it will look like this Ba(NO3)2(aq) + H2O. so see now u have an even amount of elements on each side (after switching partners)
Autum is wrong. That equation is not balanced.
