# what is the net ionic equation of 2 HBr(aq) + Ba(OH)2(aq) → 2 H2O(l) + BaBr2(aq)?

0

• 2H^+(aq)+2OH^- (aq) ——–> 2 H20 (l)

i am not sure about the powers in the reactants side. its been a year since chem. so double check that part. but you can only break up aqueous solutions and not liquids.

Source(s): okay, i looked its right.
• I doubt that Adam is still looking for the answer to this but I found the previous answer unsatisfactory.

The net ionic equation involves the Hydronium ion (H3O^+) and does not include the spectator ions. . . (2Br^-, 2Ba^+)

It should look like this:

2 H3O^+ (aq) + 2 OH^- (aq) —> 4 H2O (l)

Since the coefficients all have a common denominator of 2, you may simplify to your final net ionic equation.

H3O^+(aq) + OH^- (aq) —> 2 H2O (l)

Source(s): Just did this problem in my book and wanted to double check. lovelyb39 was incorrect
• Both Wrong^^;

Net ionic is: 2H+(aq) + 2OH-(aq) —> 2H2O(l)

The complete ionic equation is broken down from;

2H+(aq) + 2Br-(aq) + Ba2+(aq) + 2OH-(aq) —-> 2H2O(l) + Ba2+(aq) + 2Br-(aq)

^cancel out Br and Ba elements.

The net ionic is a confirmed answer from saplinglearning.com

• H+(aq)+OH-(aq)–> H2O(I)

• I got the same answer but when I entered it into sapling online it showed to be incorrect.

• this one is correct: 2H^+(aq)+2OH^- (aq) ——–> 2 H20 (l)

confirmed from saplinglearning.com

• Ligia Patricia is right.

• omg so hard idk haha SOMEONE HELP THIS GUY
