Solution: For this question, consider what might happen if a solution of mercury (II) nitrate were to be mixed with a solution of ammonium iodide. You will want to write a balanced equation and a net ionic equation to help you answer the following questions.    Upon mixing these two solutions: a redox reaction occurs an acid-base reaction occurs a decomposition reaction occurs a precipitation reaction occurs no reaction occurs

Problem
