We have to determine the formula of the salt that forms from the reaction of nitric acid (HNO3) and barium hydroxide (Ba(OH)2).
Nitric acid is a strong acid that dissociates into solution to form H+ and NO3- ions.
HNO3(aq) → H+(aq) + NO3-(aq)
Barium hydroxide is a strong base that dissociates into solution to form Ba2+ ions and OH- ions.
Ba(OH)2(aq) → Ba2+(aq) + 2 OH-(aq)
What is the formula for the salt that forms from HNO 3 + Ba(OH)2?
