We are asked to complete the equation for the reaction of NaHCO 3(s) with HC2H3O2(aq). We will refer to the solubility rules in order to determine if the product form would be an insoluble salt (precipitate) or not.
•Soluble Ionic Compounds:
▪ Group 1A ions (Li+, Na+, K+, etc.) and Ammonium ion (NH4+) are soluble
▪ Nitrates (NO3-), Acetates (CH3COO- or C2H3O2-), and most Perchlorates (ClO4-) are soluble
▪ Cl-, Br-, and I- are soluble except when paired with Ag+, Pb2+, Cu+, Hg22+
▪ Sulfates (SO42-) are soluble except those of Ca2+, Sr2+, Ba2+, Ag+, and Pb2+
• Insoluble Ionic Compounds:
Complete this equation for the reaction of NaHCO 3(s) with HC2H3O2(aq). Include phase symbols.
