What reaction occurs when 25.0 mL of 0.600 M NaOH are mixed with 15.0 mL of 0.400 M HNO3? What is the balanced equation and the net ionic equation?
The net ionic equation is simply:
The sodium ions and the nitrate ions are simply along for the ride.
Of course, it is clear that there is an excess of base.
The balanced equation is:
I leave it to you to calculate the end concentration of sodium hydroxide. Remember, you have added the volumes so now the volume of the solution is
