use the activity series to predict if a reaction will occur, complete and and balance your equation.
Zn(s)+ Cu(NO3)2

Well, is Zn more active than Cu? More active means it looses electrons "easier" then Copper? Ans: Yes, Zn looses its electrons to copper. A reaction occurs. Think this out.

I just need to know the net ionic equation and balance them. I figured the equation. but the net and balance is harder. Co(NO3)2 (aq) + NaOH (aq) = CoOH (s) + Na(NO3)2 (aq) Co(NO3)2 (aq) + Na2CO3 (aq) = CoCO3 (s) + Na2(NO3)2 (aq) Co(NO3)2 …
