Textbook Problem

Write balanced net ionic equations for the following reactions:

(a) the reaction of aqueous solutions of silver nitrate and sodium iodide

(b) the reaction of aqueous solutions of barium chloride and potassium carbonate

(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 silver nitrate and sodium iodide which is soluble in water.  In this reaction silver nitrate reacts with sodium iodide to give sodium nitrate and silver iodide, which is shown below,

  AgNO3(aq) + NaI(aq)AgI(s) + NaNO3

(b)

Interpretation Introduction
