Complete Ionic Equations show aqueous compounds as fully dissociated ions. 

Complete Ionic Equations

Concept #1: Introduction to Complete Ionic Equations

The complete ionic equation shows all the aqueous compounds broken up into ions.

Example #1: Convert the following balanced molecular equation into a complete ionic equation.

Concept #2: Net Ionic Equations

Net Ionic Equation shows only the ions participating in the chemical reaction, without the spectator ions.

Example #2: Based on the given reactants, provide both the balanced molecular equation and the complete ionic equation.

Practice: Provide the net ionic equation that occurs when the following aqueous compounds are mixed together:  

Copper (II) Bromide and Lithium Hydroxide

Practice: Which of the following reagents could be used to separate the two anions from a solution containing magnesium nitrate and cesium hydroxide?

Practice: Which of the following reagents could be used to separate the two cations from a solution containing Lead (IV) acetate and cesium permanganate?
