Question:

Predict the outcome of the following reaction. If you think a precipitation reaction will occur, balance the reaction equation and write the complete and net ionic equation of the reaction. Show states of the reactants and products.

CuCl2 (aq) + NaOH (aq) =

Balancing the Ionic Chemical Reaction


To balance the chemical equation, we must the product of the reaction firstly with their states so the we can spits the molecules formed into ions. The net ionic equation is formed by deleting the common ions present on both the sides.
