Problem: What is the net ionic equation for the reaction  NaOH + Cu(NO3)2 → Cu(OH)2 + NaNO3?

FREE Expert Solution

When a reaction equation is given, the first thing to do is to make sure that it is balanced. If the given equation is unbalanced, balance the reaction first. 

NaOH + Cu(NO3)→ Cu(OH)+ NaNO3 unbalanced

Balancing the reaction equation:

Balance Na:

NaOH + Cu(NO3)→ Cu(OH)+ NaNO(Na balanced)

Balance Cu:
