Complete and balance the following reaction: {eq}Na_2CO_3(aq) + CoCl_2(aq) \to {/eq}


Complete and balance the following reaction: {eq}Na_2CO_3(aq) + CoCl_2(aq) \to {/eq}

Precipitation Reaction:

In determining whether the reaction will lead to a precipitation reaction, the solubility rules will be used. This is a set of rules that is used whether the combination of ions will form a precipitate or not. An example of the clause of this set of rules is that all compounds of nitrate are soluble.
