Problem: The flask represents the products of the titration of 25 mL of sulfuric acid with 25 mL of sodium hydroxide.Write balanced molecular, total ionic, and net ionic equations for the reaction.

FREE Expert Solution

For this problem, we are being asked to write balanced molecular, total ionic, and net ionic equations for the reaction.

We’re going to determine the spectator ions 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


Step 1. Write the overall balanced reaction

Reactants:

Sulfuric acid → H2SO4(aq) → aqueous → will break up into its ions

▪ H → Group 1A → H+ 
▪ SO4 → polyatomic anion → SO42-
