Problem

How to complete this reaction? HNO3 + H2O ?

Solution

We are asked to complete the reaction between nitric acid (HNO3) and water (H2O).


First, let’s analyze the reactants.

Nitric Acid HNO3

• Nitric acid has 3 O atoms and 1 H atoms

• 3 O – 1 H = 2 O

Recall: An oxyacid with at least 2 O left after H atoms are subtracted is a strong acid

• HNO3 is a strong acid that will completely dissociate in a solution

HNO3(aq) → H+(aq) + NO3-(aq)
