How do you write the total ionic equation and net ionic equation for the reaction of silver nitrate and potassium chloride?
Total ionic equation:
Net ionic equation:
The reaction between silver nitrate
During this reaction, a precipitate will form which is the silver chloride
The total ionic equation would be:
The net ionic equation however, would be:
Notice, the spectator ions - which are the common ions in both sides - are removed from the net ionic equation.
