predict the outcome of mixing aqueous solutions of the following reactions. write the ionic equations of each.
mercury (ll) nitrate + ammonium iodide
manganese (ll) chloride + sodium sulfide
lead (ll) nitrate + sodium sulfate
barium nitrate + lithium sulfate
aluminum sulfate + sodium hydroxide
The secret here is to know the solubility rules. Here is a simplified set for you to memorize.
Here is an example.
Pb(NO3)3(aq) + Na2SO4(aq) ==> PbSO4(s) + 2NaNO3(aq)
The net ionic equation is
Pb^2+(aq) + SO4^2-(aq) ==> PbSO4(s). This reaction takes place BECAUSE PbSO4 is insoluble in water. All of the others have a ppt to form as a product, also.
