Molecular and ionic equations

What would be the proper balanced molecular and net ionic equations for each of these neutralization reactions?

- solid chromium (III) hydroxide reacts with nitric acid
- aqueous hypochlorous acid and aqueous calcium hydroxide react
- aqueous acetic acid is neutralized by aqueous potassium hydroxide

Solution Preview

Chromium Hydroxide will be a tri-basic base, clue is because of its oxidation state being III which gives the metal a plus 3 charge (needs 3 hydroxides to balance the charge). Nitric acid is HNO3, a monoprotic acid. Three monoprotic acids, will ...
