    It helps us if you don't change screen names. Do you know how to do these? There is a procedure to follow.
    1. Convert molecular equation to TOTAL ionic equation following these rules:
    a. gases are written as molecules.
    b. insoluble materials are written as molecules.
    c. weak electrolytes are written as molecules.
    d. all others are written as ions.
    H^+)aq) + Cl^-(aq) + Na^+(aq) + OH^-(aq) ==> Na^+(aq) + Cl^-(aq) + H2O(l)

    2. Now cancel substances that appear on both sides of the equation. So I cancel Na^+(aq) and Cl^-(aq)

    3. The result is the NET ionic equation
    H^+(aq) + OH^-(aq) ==> H2O(l).
