## What is the net ionic equation for the reaction of AgNO3(aq) and Na2CO3(aq)? (a) Ag+(aq) + CO32−(aq) → AgCO3(s) (b) Na+(aq) + NO3−(aq) → NaNO3(s) (c) 2 Ag+(aq) + CO32−(aq) → Ag2CO3(s) (d) AgNO3(aq) + Na2CO3(aq) → 2 NaNO3(aq) + Ag2CO3(s)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Net ionic equation for the reaction of silver nitrate and sodium carbonate 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 of Solution

In this reaction silver nitrate is reaction with sodium carbonate to give silver carbonate and sodium nitrate.

Na2CO3(aq) + 2 AgNO3(aq)  Ag2CO3(s)+ 2 NaNO3(aq)

The total ionic reaction can be written as follow,

2 Na+(aq) + CO32-(aq) + 2 Ag
