    Question 8
    Which of the following represents the balanced net ionic equation for the reaction of SrCl2(aq) and K2C2O4(aq) (both of these salts are soluble in water), where SrC2O4(s) precipitates?

    a.) Sr2+(aq) + 2 Cl-(aq) + 2 K+(aq) + C2O42-(aq) --->SrC2O4(s) + 2 KCl(aq)

    b.) Sr2+(aq) + C2O42-(aq) ---> SrC2O4(s)

    c.) Sr2+(aq) + Cl22-(aq) + K22+(aq) + C2O42-(aq) --->SrC2O4(s) + 2 KCl(aq)

    d.) Cl-(aq) + K+(aq) ---> KCl(s)

    e.) H+(aq) + OH-(aq) ---> H2O(l)

    Solution Preview

    the balanced equation is
    SrCl2 (aq) + K2C2O4 (aq) --> 2KCl (aq) + SrC2O4 (s)

    since both SrCl2 and K2C2O4 are soluble salts in water, ...

    Solution Summary

    It finds the balanced net ionic equation for the reaction of SrCl2(aq) and K2C2O4(aq), where SrC2O4(s) precipitates.
