Write a net ionic equation for the overall reaction that occurs when aqueous solutions of potassium hydroxide and carbonic acid are combined.
KOH + H2CO3 = KCO3 + H30
K^+(aq) + OH^-(aq) + h2CO3 (aq) = K^+(aq) + CO3^2+(aq) + H3O(aq)
Is this correct so far?
2KOH + H2CO3 ==> K2CO3 + 2H2O is the balanced molecular equation. Can you convert to the net ionic equation?
