Double displacement reaction → ions swap
Step 1: Complete balanced equation
Complete reaction: HCl (aq) + Li2CO3 (aq) → H2CO3 (aq) + LiCl (aq)
Balanced reaction: 2 HCl(aq) + Li2CO3(aq) → H2O (l) + CO2 (g) + 2LiCl (aq)
Step 2: Total or full ionic equation
• Breaks up into ions in solution:
Predict the products of each of these reactions and write balanced complete ionic and net ionic equations for each. If no reaction occurs, write NOREACTION .
HCl(aq) + Li2CO3(aq) →
Express your answer as a chemical equation. Identify all of the phases in your answer. Enter noreaction if no precipitate is formed.
