Question:

The following chemical reaction takes place in aqueous solution:

{eq}SnBr_2 (aq) + K_2S (aq) \rightarrow SnS (s) + 2KBr (aq) {/eq}

Write the net ionic equation for this reaction.

Net Ionic Equation:

Not all species in aqueous solution are involved in a chemical reaction. In double displacement reactions two aqueous ionic solutions are combined. The positive ions switch with each other forming the new products. The net ionic equation removes any ions that are not part of water, a gas or a precipitate.

The net ionic equation is {eq}Sn^{+2}(aq)+S^{-2}(aq)\rightarrow SnS(s) {/eq}.

Let's start with the complete equation and then turn in into the...
