Hi,

I've been trying to solve this chemical equation for the last 30 minutes and am only confusing myself. I am wondering if the product I obtained is correct.

The question is to write a balanced equation for the below reaction and be sure to indicate the states and if there is a reaction.

NH4OH (aq) + H2OCO3 (aq) ---> ?

This is what I got: (NH4)2CO3 (aq) + H2O (aq). But Im beginning to think that there is no reaction because they are all weak electrolytes. Please help. Thanks!

I strongly suspect that H2OCO3 should have been H2CO3. Is that correct as written or did you make a typo?

• Cemistry -

Dr. Bob, you are correct I made a typo the reactants are NH4OH (aq) + H2CO3 (aq).
My answer is still the same as above. Is my answer correct? I have not balanced it yet.

Also,I believe there is no reaction, due to being weak electrolytes.

• Cemistry -

Yes, (NH4)2 + H2O are the products of the reaction. Yes, you need to balance it.
