What is the complete ionic equation for the reaction of hydrochloric acid with potassium hydroxide?
Hydrochloric acid is HCl. This is an ionic substance so in water it breaks apart into ions
Potassium Hydroxide is also an ionic substance it also breaks apart in water into ions
So the complete ionic equation for the reaction is
The Hydrogen ion and the Hydroxide ions combine to form water.
The net ionic equation is
This is because the
