Double displacement reaction → ions swap

Step 1: Complete balanced equation

Complete reaction: HCl (aq) + Li2CO3 (aq) → H2CO3 (aq) + LiCl (aq)

• All Group 1A salts → soluble (aq)
• Li and H → Group 1A
• But H2COunstable decomposes
• H2CO3 (aq) → H2O (l) + CO2 (g)

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:

• soluble ionic compounds
• aqueous compounds

1. Li2CO3(aq) → 2Li+ (aq)+ CO32- (aq)
2. HCl (aq) →  2H+ (aq) + 2Cl- (aq) ###### Problem Details
