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