Problem Details

Write a balanced equation to show the reaction of aqueous aluminum acetate with aqueous ammonium phosphate to form solid aluminum phospate and aqueous ammonium acetate.

A) Al(C2H3O2)2(aq) + (NH3)2PO4(aq) → AlPO4(s) + 2NH3C2H3O2(aq)

B) Al(C2H3O2)2(aq) + (NH4)2PO4(aq) → AlPO4(s) + 2NH4C2H3O2(aq)

C) Al(CO2)3(aq) + (NH4)3PO3(aq) → AlPO3(s) + 3NH4CO2(aq)

D) Al(C2H3O2)3(aq) + (NH4)3PO4(aq) → AlPO4(s) + 3NH4C2H3O2(aq)

E) Al(CO2)3(aq) + (NH3)2PO4(aq) → AlPO4(s) + 2NH3CO3(aq)
