Write the net ionic equation for the precipitation reaction that occurs when aqueous solutions of potassium carbonate and lead(II) nitrate are combined.
A chemical reaction is known as a precipitation reaction if an insoluble compound is formed after the reaction is complete. The net ionic equation cannot be written for reactions that result in the formation of aqueous substances; therefore, they are most applicable for precipitation reactions.
Answer and Explanation: 1
We need to write the net ionic equation for the reaction between potassium carbonate and lead(II) nitrate.
We first write the balanced molecular...
