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.
