For the total ionic equation → soluble ionic compounds (in aqueous form) separate or breaks up and become ions
• Solids, gases, and liquids will not break up since they are insoluble compounds
AgNO3(aq) + NaCl(aq) → AgCl(s) + NaNO3(aq)
Total/complete ionic equation:
Ag+(aq) + NO3-(aq) + Na+(aq) + Cl-(aq) → AgCl(s) + Na+(aq) + NO3-(aq)
For the net ionic equation, spectator ions are removed.
Enter the balanced net ionic equation for AgNO3(aq) + NaCl(aq) → AgCl(s) + NaNO3(aq)
