Problem: Write net ionic equation for the reaction of solutions of sodium hydroxide and magnesium chloride

FREE Expert Solution



We’re going to determine the net ionic equation using the following steps:

Step 1. Write the overall balanced reaction
Step 2. Write the total or full ionic equation
Step 3. Identify the spectator ions and cancel


Step 1. Write the overall balanced reaction

Reactants:

sodium hydroxide  → NaOH(aq) → aqueous → will break up into its ions

▪ Na → Group 1A → +1 charge → Na+
▪ OH- → polyatomic anion
