###### FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to give the balanced chemical equation, the total ionic equation and the net ionic equation for the reactions below:

(a) (NH4)2SO4(aq) + SrCl2(aq)

(b) (NH4)2SO4(aq)  + H2SO4(aq)

(c) Mg(NO3)2(aq) + Na2CO3(aq)

(d) Mg(NO3)2(aq) + SrCl2(aq)

(e) Mg(NO3)2(aq) + H2SO4(aq)

(f) NaOH(aq) + Na2CO3(aq)

We are going to do the following steps:

Step 1: Write the balance equation

The number of elements on both sides is equal with the lowest whole number coefficients.

Step 2: Write the total ionic equation

All soluble compounds and aqueous compounds break into ions

Step 3: Write the net ionic equation

Remove all spectator ions which are species present on both reactant and product side
