Balanced & Net Ionic Equations

Write the balanced molecular equation, complete ionic and net ionic equation for the following acid base reaction.

HCL(aq) + NH3(aq)

NH3 is an exception, so I'm not sure what to do with it.

Solution Preview

For net ionic equations, you need to rid the equation of unnecessary ions (or complex ions). So we need to identify which ones are unnecessary.

HCl + NH3 ...

Solution Summary

Brief equations show how to balance and work out the net ionic forms of a HCL NH3 equation.
