Ionic equations

1.) What is the net ionic equation for the reaction of AgBr with a strong acid?

2.) What is the net ionic equation for the reaction of NaCl with a strong base?

Solution Preview

Let's consider AgBr with HNO3 for instance since we know that HNO3 is a strong acid and let's set up the equation to see what happens:

AgBr +HNO3 ==> Ag(NO3) + HBr this is an exchange reaction. Now we know that AgBr is not a soluble solid and that all the rest are soluble compounds (HNO3, Ag(NO3), and HBr) and ...
