Question:

For each pair of compounds in aqueous solutions, state whether or not a chemical reaction occurs. Create balanced chemical equations and include the states of each reactant and product. If a precipitation reaction occurs, provide the ionic and net ionic equations.

a) Sodium chloride mixes with potassium hydroxide to yield:

b) Ammonium sulfate mixes with barium hydroxide to yield:

c) Barium hydroxide reacts with zinc(II) iodide reacts to yield:

Reactions in Aqueous Solutions:

In double displacement reactions, we need to dissolve the reactants in water so that the ions become freely moving and can collide with other ions to produce new products. If we mixed solid versions of the ionic compounds together, the reaction would no occur as the ions are locked in a lattice structure.

For a precipitation reaction will occur, two conditions must be met:

  1. Both reactants must be soluble in water. These are given aqueous (aq) state...
