Textbook Problem

For each reaction, write an overall, balanced equation and the net ionic equation.

(a) the reaction of aqueous lead(II) nitrate and aqueous potassium hydroxide

(b) the reaction of aqueous copper(II) nitrate and aqueous sodium carbonate

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The balanced overall equation for given reaction and net ionic equation 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 balanced equation is shown below

  

The given compound is Copper(II) nitrate and sodium carbonate which is soluble in water.  In this reaction Copper(II) nitrate reaction with sodium carbonate to give Copper(II) carbonate and sodium nitrate.

  

Balance the equation,

Balance the sodium atom in the given equation, when balancing the equation, we should not alter the subscripts and we can change coefficients...

(b)

Interpretation Introduction
