HCL+Al=AlCl3+H2
What is the ionic equation,the spectator ions and the overall or net ionic equations?

  • Science(Chemistry) -

    I assume you means HCl(aq) and AlCl3(aq).
    The balanced equation is
    6HCl + 2Al ==> 2AlCl3 + 3H2


    6H^+ + 6Cl^- + 2Al ==> 2Al^3+ + 6Cl^- + 3H2 is overall(total) ionic. Your post implies that that overall and net ionic equation are the same but the overall equation is the total. The net is the total minus spectator ions.

    The net ionic equation is
    6H^+ + 2Al ==> 2Al^3+ + 3H2

    The spectator ions are those that appear in the overall ionic equation but not in the net ionic equation.
