For the acid-base neutralization reaction of Carbonic acid, H2CO3(aq) and lithium hydroxide, LiOH(aq), write the blanced:
a)complete equation
b) Ionic equation
c) Net ionic equation.

i got
a) H2CO3(aq) + 2LiOH(aq) = 2H2O(l) +Li2CO3(aq)

i know my answers for the next are not right i'm just confused how to start these equations.Please help! :)

  1. To write net ionic equations you follow some rules. Some things that are written as molecules are
    1. weak electrolytes (those that do not ionize 100% such as weak acids(those with a Ka), weak bases (those with a Kb), H2O, ETC.
    b. insoluble materials (memorize the solubility rules). Here is a simplified set of rules.
    Everything else is written as ions.
    H2CO3(aq) + 2Li^+(aq) + 2OH^-(aq) ==>2H2O(l) + 2Li^+(aq) + CO3^2-(aq)
    What I have written above is the ionic equation. To write the net ionic equation, we cancel any ions common to both sides. Therefore, we cancel 2Li^+(aq) and rewrite the net ionic equation as
    H2CO3(aq) + 2OH^-(aq) ==>2H2O(l) + CO3^2-(aq)
