Report issue Transcript I honestly hate when we have to memorize a lot of things, polyatomic Ions is one and this would be the second. Here we have to learn our solubility rules. Solubility also has another name. Its other name is concentration.
However, it really makes no difference in what order the reactants are listed -- it is still the same reaction. I followed this same custom in working out the previous reaction -- with sodium carbonate and calcium chloride.
It shows that the ammonium and bromide ions never really do anything. The only thing that has happened to them is that they used to be in separate containers, and when the solutions are combined, they find themselves in the same container.
On the other hand, the calcium and carbonate ions assemble to form a solid crystal.
The only thing that kept them from reacting before was that they were in separate containers. As soon as they shared a common aqueous medium, they immediately began assembling to form the solid.
In this reaction, then, we get a precipitate of calcium carbonate, and the supernatant liquid contains dissolved ammonium bromide.
Sometimes, when working on "molecular" or complete formula equations, we might complete a metathesis reaction where no reaction actually occurs.
The complete formula equation can be deceptive, leading us to see a reaction where there is none.
If there is any doubt, we should attempt to work out the net ionic equation for our proposed reaction. If one can not be written, there is no reaction. In this case, we should go back to the complete formula equation and write "NR" for "No Reaction" after the arrow.
The following example illustrates this point. Describe the reaction if any when aqueous solutions of sodium phosphate and potassium nitrate are mixed.
If there is going to be a reaction, we would expect it to be a metathesis reaction, because we have two ionic compounds in aqueous solution.
The most likely reaction if there is going to be one is a swapping of cations and anions. By doing this swapping, we propose the following reaction: If we merely replace each chemical name with its correct chemical formula we get the following equation.
In the above, we have 3 Na atoms on the left but only 1 on the right. We can solve this problem by putting a coefficient of 3 in front of NaNO3.
We have 3 K atoms on the right but only 1 on the left. We can solve this problem by putting a coefficient of 3 in front of KNO3.
The problem has already given away, the fact that sodium phosphate and potassium nitrate are soluble in water, because we are supposed to be mixing aqueous solutions of them, which we could not have if they were not soluble.
However, the sodium nitrate and potassium phosphate are formed in the reaction, and it is possible that one of these is not soluble in water.
Fortunately, there are some rules we can go by to help us decide if a particular ionic compound is soluble in water. These rules are summarized in tables in most general chemistry textbooks. This table Table 4.
Since both sodium and potassium are group 1A metals see the periodic tablewe predict that sodium nitrate and potassium phosphate are water soluble, as are sodium phosphate and potassium nitrate.
Hence, all substances in the equation will bear the aq label. Our complete formula equation now looks like this: The rule for writing the net ionic equation is to cross out the spectator ions in the ionic equation, and then write down those ions that were NOT crossed out. Thus, there is no net ionic equation, and therefore, no reaction.
Shown below is an ionic picture of the "reaction" we had proposed. We start out with the sodium and phosphate ions in one container and the potassium and nitrate ions in a separate container. When we mix the solutions, nothing happens.
We just get a solution containing all 4 types of ions, because there is no possible pairing of the ions that can lead to a water insoluble compound precipitate. Notice that the mixed solutions can still be considered to contain the original sodium phosphate and potassium nitrate, because a sodium phosphate solution is characterized as containing sodium ions and phosphate ions, while a potassium nitrate solution is characterized as containing potassium ions and nitrate ions.3.
Sodium nitrate and cupric acetate solutions are mixed together. 5. Aqueous sodium phosphate and sulfuric acid are mixed. a. How many moles of calcium nitrate is produced when 3 moles of calcium hydroxide and 4 moles of nitric acid are mixed? Jan 03, · Calcium nitrate, also called Norgessalpeter (Norwegian saltpeter), is an inorganic compound with the formula Ca(NO).
This colourless salt absorbs moisture from the air and is commonly found as a tetrahydrate. It is mainly used as a component in fertilizers but has other applications.
A water‐compatible variant of a click‐like polymerization between alkynoates and secondary amines to form β‐aminoacrylate synthetic polyethylene glycol (PEG) based hydrogels was developed. Cell culture experiments indicate cytocompatibility of these gels with >90 % viability retained in THP‐1 and NIH/3T3 cells after 72 hours in culture.
