Step 1

The balanced chemical equation for the reaction between copper nitrate and potassium hydroxide is:

Step 2

The aqeous components in the reaction undergoes dissociation and are present as ions. Thus, writing the equation in form of ions is called ionic equation. Cancelling the similar terms from the ionic reaction results in the net ionic equation. Thus, writing the ionic and the net ionic equation of the given reaction :

Step 3

Molarity is defined as the number of moles of solute per liter of the sol...
