Balance the equations and write the total ionic equation and the net ionic equation for the reactions:
a.) K3PO4 (aq) + Ca(NO3)2 (aq)---->Ca3(PO4)3 (s) + KNO3 (aq)
b.) Al(NO3)3 (aq) + NaOH (aq)----> Al(OH)3 (s) + NaNO3 (aq)© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 4:39 pm ad1c9bdddf
(a) First of all, I believe you've got a typo in this equation. It should be
K3PO4 (aq) + Ca(NO3)2 (aq)---->Ca3(PO4)2 (s) + KNO3 (aq)
When you balance, start with the calcium,
K3PO4 (aq) + 3 Ca(NO3)2 (aq)---->Ca3(PO4)2 (s) + KNO3 (aq)
Then do the nitrates:
K3PO4 (aq) + 3 Ca(NO3)2 (aq)---->Ca3(PO4)2 (s) ...
