Double displacement reaction → ions swap


Step 1: Complete balanced equation


Complete reaction: Li2CO3(aq) + NaCl(aq) → LiCl (aq) + Na2CO3(aq)

  • All Group 1A salts → soluble (aq)
  • Li and Na → Group 1A

Balanced reaction: Li2CO3(aq) + 2 NaCl(aq) → 2 LiCl (aq) + Na2CO3(aq)


Step 2: Total or full ionic equation

Breaks up into ions in solution:

  • soluble ionic compounds 
  • aqueous compounds 


  1. Li2CO3(aq) → 2Li+ (aq)+ CO32- (aq)
  2. 2NaCl(aq) → 2Na+ (aq) + 2Cl- (aq)
  3. LiCl (aq) →  2Li+ (aq) + 2Cl- (aq)
  4. Na2CO3(aq) → 2Na+ (aq) + CO32- (aq)
