Cut to the Chase: Net Ionic Equations Strong Electrolytes [ 100% ionized (split apart) in water] Example: NaCl à Na + + Cl - 100 100 100 ( this is 100% ionized) A. Strong Acids: HCl, HBr, HI, H 2 SO 4 , HNO 3 , HClO 4 , HClO 3 ( acids start with H) All 7 of these ionize ( split apart in water). If it starts with an H and is not one of these 7, do not split it up and put a box around it. If it is one of these 7, write it like this: H + /Cl - which means it looks like this in water: H + + Cl - . B. Strong Bases: Hydroxides (OH) of group IA and II A, Except Be and Mg (Strong bases end in OH) If it ends in an OH and the beginning element is not in group IA or IIA (except Be and Mg) do not ionize ( split it apart). Put a box around it. If it is a strong base write it like this Ba 2+ /(OH) 2 - . C. Soluble Salts ( ionic compounds: metal/nonmetal) If a salt is soluble, it will ionize ( split apart). If you find the salt in the chart below, split it apart. If the salt is not in the chart below, do not split it apart. put a box around it.
