## Question:

Write the net ionic equation and include the state of the chemical.

{eq}\displaystyle \rm CuCO_3 (s) + HCl (aq) {/eq}

## Neutralization Reaction:

The reaction which establishes the relationship between any acidic compounds to the basic compound is categorized as a neutralization reaction.

The condensed equation of the copper carbonate with hydrochloric acid is shown below.

{eq}\rm CuC{O_3}\left( s \right) + 2HCl\left( {aq} \right) \to {H_2}O\left( l \right) + C{O_2}\left( g \right) + CuC{l_2}\left( {aq} \right) {/eq}

The complete ionic equation is shown below.

{eq}\rm CuC{O_3}\left( s \right) + 2{H^ + }\left( {aq} \right) + 2C{l^ - }\left( {aq} \right) \to {H_2}O\left( l \right) + C{O_2}\left( g \right) + C{u^{2 + }}\left( {aq} \right) + 2C{l^ - }\left( {aq} \right) {/eq}

In the above reaction basically, copper and chloride act as spectator ions. So after crossing or canceling these spectator ions, we will get the final net equation shown below.

{eq}\rm CuC{O_3}\left( s \right) + 2{H^ + }\left( {aq} \right) \to {H_2}O\left( l \right) + C{O_2}\left( g \right) + C{u^{2 + }}\left( {aq} \right) {/eq}

Therefore, the net ionic equation is {eq}\rm CuC{O_3}\left( s \right) + 2{H^ + }\left( {aq} \right) \to {H_2}O\left( l \right) + C{O_2}\left( g \right) + C{u^{2 + }}\left( {aq} \right) {/eq}.
