Solid ferric nitrate and aqueous sodium hydroxide are combined with water in a test tube. A brown to red precipitate forms in the test tube. Write a complete chemical reaction that accounts for the formation of the solid.
I bet you are seeing Iron(III)hydroxide. How did it form?
Well I got Iron(3)hydroxide as a solid and NaNo3 as aqueous.....
Not sure if that is right but that's my best guess as of right now....
Just a note to suggest you follow the guidelines better; e.g., NaNO3 instead of NaNo3. Iron(III) hydroxide and not iron(3) hydroxide.
Fe(NO3)3(aq) + 3NaOH(aq) ==> Fe(OH)3(s) + 3NaNO3(aq)
