Solution Reactions Chemical reactions in solution can be written in three different forms: Molecular Equation Gives the overall reaction stoichiometry but not necessarily the actual form of the reactants and products in  solution. For example, when you mix HCl with aqueous NaOH, a reaction occurs that forms water and the salt  NaCl. HCl (aq)  + NaOH (aq)    H 2 O (aq)  + NaCl (aq) This is a molecular equation. It doesn't give a clear picture of what actually occurs in solution. Each reactant and  product, HCl (aq) , NaOH (aq) , H 2 O (aq) , and NaCl (aq) , actually exist in solution split into their respective cations and  anions. Complete Ionic Equation Represents all solution phase reactants and products that are strong electrolytes as ions. H + (aq)  + Cl - (aq)  + Na + (aq)  + OH - (aq)    H 2 O (aq)  + Na + (aq)  + Cl - (aq)
