Finding the Net Ionic Equation

What is the net ionic equation of

2Fe(NH4)2(SO4)2*6H2O + 6K2C2O4 + H2O2 + H2SO4

2K3[Fe(C2O4)3]*3H20 + 3K2SO4 + 2(NH4)2 SO4 + 8H2O

Solution Preview

In these types of questions you can ignore the spectator ions, in the above question, it will be the species that do not change on either side. NH4, SO4, C2O4 and K fall in this category. You can ignore the *H2O's as well, but the H2O is probably with the H2O2 species

The net ionic equation should look ...

Solution Summary

In these types of questions you can ignore the spectator ions, in the above question, it will be the species that do not change on either side. NH4, SO4, C2O4 and K fall in this category. You can ignore the *H2O's as well, but the H2O is probably with the H2O2 species

The net ionic equation should look something like this after you are all done with the deletions of those species....
