solid chromium (III) hydroxide: Cr(OH)3 (s) → Cr3+ (aq) + 3 OH- (aq)
nitrous acid: HNO2 (aq) → H+ (aq) + NO2- (aq)
Cr3+ (aq) + NO2- (aq) → Cr(NO2)3 → all nitrates are soluble → aqueous
H+ (aq) + OH- (aq) → H2O (l)
Write balanced molecular and net ionic equations for each of the following neutralization reactions.
Enter the molecular equation representing solid chromium (III) hydroxide reacting with nitrous acid.
