Textbook Problem

Balance the following equations, and then write the net ionic equation. Show states for all reactants and products (s, , g, aq).

(a) the reaction of silver nitrate and potassium iodide to give silver iodide and potassium nitrate

(b) the reaction of barium hydroxide and nitric add to give barium nitrate and water

(c) the reaction of sodium phosphate and nickel(II) nitrate to give nickel(II) phosphate and sodium nitrate

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

  • The given equation has to be balanced and net ionic equation should be written.
  • For all reactant and products, the state should be shown.

Concept introduction:

The law of conservation of mass states that no atoms can be created or destroyed in a chemical reaction, therefore, the number of atoms present in the reactants is equal to the number of atoms present in the products.

Explanation

The given compound is silver nitrate and potassium iodide which is soluble in water.  In this reaction silver nitrate reacts with potassium iodide to give silver iodide and potassium nitrate.

  AgNO3(aq)+KI(aq)AgI(s) + KNO3(aq)

Balance the equation,

The reaction is already balanced.  Therefore the balanced equation is given below

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

  • The given equation has to be balanced and net ionic equation should be written.
  • For all reactant and products, the state should be shown.

Concept introduction:
