Textbook Problem

Write a balanced net ionic equation for the reaction of Ca2+ ion with H2CO3.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The balanced net ionic equation for the reaction of Ca2+ ion with H2CO3 has to 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 net ionic equation is shown below

  Ca2+(aq) + H2CO3(aq)+2H2O(l)CaCO3(s) + 2H3O+(aq)

The given compound is Ca2+ and carbonic acid. In this reaction salt of Ca2+ reaction with carbonic acid to give calcium carbonate and H3O+.

  Ca2+(aq) + H2CO3(aq)+2H2O(l)CaCO3(s) + 2H3O+(aq)

Balance the equation,

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