Problem

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. 

An ion that is present in the molecular formula but absent in the net ionic equation is said to be a(n):

 

a) participatory ion

b) spectator ion

c) absent ion

d) helper ion

e) none of the above
