What is the net ionic equation of the reaction of MgSO4 with Pb(NO3)2?
The balanced equation for this reaction is
The complete ionic equation is
If you eliminate spectator ions, which are the ions thatcan be found both on the reactants' and on the products' side, you'll get the net ionic equation
Lead (II) sulfate is insoluble in aqueous solution and will form a precipitate.
Here is another example which illustrates how to write a net ionic equation.
