# The NET IONIC EQUATION for the reaction between silver carbonate and hydrochloric acid is..? (10 points!)?

0

can you explain how you figured it out?

• Silver Carbonate= Ag2CO3

Hydrochloric Acid= HCl

The fourth property of an acid is:

Acid + Metal Carbonate –> Salt + CO2 + H2O

Ag2CO3 + HCl –> CO2 + H2O + AgCl

balance the equation if you know what i mean

Ag2CO3 + 2HCl –> CO2 + H2O + 2AgCl

• Formula For Silver Carbonate

• Silver carbonate is a solid silver salt which is insoluble in water ; in the Chemical Equation , it will be represented by Ag2CO3(s)

Hydrochloric acid is an aqueous solution of HCl where most of HCl are in ionized form ; in the Chemical Equation , it will be represented by H^+(aq) and Cl^-(aq)

H^+ ( Proton from Hydrochloric acid ) will react with CO3^2- ( Carbonate ion from Silver carbonate ) to yield H2O(l) ( liquid water ) and CO2(g) ( Carbon dioxide Gas )

Ag^+(aq) ( Silver ion ) and Cl^-(aq) ( Chloride ion ) will combined as AgCl(s) ( Solid Silver chloride ) which will precipitate out from aqueous solution .

Complete Balanced Ionic Equation is

Ag2CO3(s) + 2 H^+(aq) + 2 Cl^-(aq) —> 2 AgCl(s) + H2O(l) + CO2(g)

Which is also the Net Ionic Equation

• Silver Carbonate= Ag2CO3

Hydrochloric Acid= HCl

The fourth property of an acid is:

Acid + Metal Carbonate –> Salt + CO2 + H2O

Ag2CO3 + HCl –> CO2 + H2O + AgCl

*Balance it*

Ag2CO3 + 2HCl –> CO2 + H2O + 2AgCl

• silver carbonate is very weak electrolyte and ionizes Into form Ag+ ion and CO3– Carbonate ion with minus 2 valency. HCl is strong electrolyte andionizess to form H+ and Cl- ion. Ag+combines with Cl- ion to form AgCl which is insoluble in water and is precipitated out,2H+ ions combine with one oxygen atom form carbonate ion to form cabon dioxidee and water; equation in ionic form may be written as Ag2CO3——->2Ag+ +CO3-2

HCl———>H+ +Cl-

AG+ +Cl——->AgCl(PPT)

2H+ +CO3-2 ——–>H2O+CO2 (GAS)
