Textbook Problem

Write balanced net ionic equations for the following reactions:

(a) the reaction of nitrous add (a weak add) and sodium hydroxide in aqueous solution

(b) the reaction of calcium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Balanced net ionic equation for the given reaction should be written.

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 sodium hydroxide and nitrous acid which is soluble in water.  In this reaction sodium hydroxide reacts with nitrous acid to give sodium nitrate.

  NaOH(aq) + HNO2(aq)  NaNO2(aq) + H2O(l)

In this reaction, all the soluble ionic dissociates and forms the ions in solution

(b)
