Could you please tell me the name of the following solutions after they are mixed and what their net ionic equations would be?
Please see Guide at the end, too...
-ammonia poured into aluminum nitrate
NH3(aq) + H2O ---> NH4+(aq) + OH-(aq)

Al(NO3)3 + 3 OH-(aq) ----> Al(OH)3(s) + 3 NO3-(aq)

Al3+(aq) + 3 OH- ----> Al(OH)3(s) (aluminum hydroxide)

-barium chloride poured into sodium sulfate
BaCl2(aq) + Na2SO4(aq) ----> BaSO4(s) + 2 NaCl(aq)

"Insides" combine and "outsides" combine

"Insides" = Na+ and Cl- ---> NaCl(aq)
"Outsides" = Ba2+ and SO42- ----> BaSO4(s)

The net ionic equation is the one that gives the solid (barium sulfate = BaSO4)...please see the solubility chart in the guide I attached to the end.

Ba2+(aq) + SO42-(aq) ----> BaSO4(s)

-copper(II) chloride poured into sodium carbonate

CuCl2(aq) + Na2CO3(aq) ----> CuCO3(s) + 2 NaCl(aq)

"Insides" combine and "outsides" combine

"Insides" = Na+ and Cl- ---> NaCl(aq)
"Outsides" = Cu2+ and CO32- ----> CuCO3(s)

The net ionic equation is the one that gives the solid (copper (II) carbonate = CuCO3)...please see the solubility chart in the guide I attached to the end.

Cu2+(aq) + CO32-(aq) ----> CuCO3(s)

-lead(II) nitrate poured into potassium iodide

Pb(NO3)2 (aq) + 2 KI(aq) ----> PbI2(s) + 2 KNO3(aq)

"Insides" combine and "outsides" combine

"Insides" = K+ and NO3- ---> KNO3(aq)
"Outsides" = Pb2+ and I- ----> PbI2(s)

The net ionic equation is the one that gives the solid (lead (II) iodidePbI2)...please see the solubility chart in the guide I attached to the end.

Pb2+(aq) + 2 I-(aq) ----> PbI2(s)

-mercury(II) chloride poured into potassium iodide

HgCl2 (aq) + 2 KI(aq) ----> HgI2(s) + 2 KCl(aq)

"Insides" combine and "outsides" combine

"Insides" = K+ and Cl- ---> KCl(aq)
"Outsides" = Hg2+ and I- ----> HgI2(s)

The net ionic equation is the one that gives the solid (mercury (II) iodide = HgI2)...please see the solubility chart in the guide I attached to the end.

Hg2+(aq) + 2 I-(aq) ----> HgI2(s)

-mercury(II) chloride poured into sodium carbonate

HgCl2(aq) + Na2CO3(aq) ----> HgCO3(s) + 2 NaCl(aq)

"Insides" combine and "outsides" combine

"Insides" = Na+ and Cl- ---> NaCl(aq)
"Outsides" = Hg2+ and CO32- ----> HgCO3(s)

The net ionic equation is the one that gives the solid (mercury (II) carbonate = HgCO3)...please see the solubility chart in the guide ...
