What is the ionic equation and the net ionic equation for the following equation: CuSO4•5H2O + Fe → FeSO4 + Cu + 5H2O?


What is the ionic equation and the net ionic equation for the following equation: CuSO4•5H2O + Fe → FeSO4 + Cu + 5H2O?

Step 1

 For the reactions taking place in aqueous solutions ,the net ionic equation is very important and useful as only those chemical species which are participating in the reaction as reactants are included. Although for the chemical reactions that take place in aqueous solutions there are about three different kinds of  balanced equations  used for writing the chemical reaction, the molecular equation, the net ionic equation and the full ionic equation.

Step 2

Molecular equations are the chemical equations where each of the substances in the reaction are shown as compounds where physical state of the chemical species is written next to its molecular formula.

The full ionic equation shows the compounds as separate ions depending upon if they are water soluble or not. Here insoluble substances can be separated with the symbol (s) written with them.

And lastly, the net ionic equation mainly refers to the equation which includes only reacting chemical species ,i.e. the compound or the ions which change in some way during the course of the given reaction

Step 3

Always you can note that there are some ions that are present on both sides of the equation, i.e. both sides of the arrow, such ions do not participate in the reaction and therefore gets eliminated from the full ionic equation by crossing such species out. T...
