Textbook Problem

Write net ionic equations for the following reactions:

(a) The reaction of acetic acid, a weak acid, and Sr(OH)2(aq).

(b) The reaction of zinc and hydrochloric add to form zinc(II) chloride and hydrogen gas.

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The balanced net ionic equation for 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 balanced equation is shown below

  2CH3COOH (aq) + Sr(OH)2(aq)Sr(CH3COO)2(aq)+ 2H2O(l)

The given compound is acetic acid and Strontium hydroxide.  In this reaction acetic acid reaction with Strontium hydroxide to give Strontium acetate and H2O
