Write the net ionic equation for the reaction between potassium hydroxide and copper (I) nitrate.

Question:

Write the net ionic equation for the reaction between potassium hydroxide and copper (I) nitrate.

Net ionic equations:

Net ionic equations are those that only include species which take part in the reaction. This usually means that they enter compounds which are soluble and hence exist as ions (or vice versa and become insoluble). Those species omitted are called spectator ions.
