Unformatted text preview: 2 CO 3 , such as HCl (aq) + NaHCO 3 (aq) NaCl (aq) + H 2 CO 3 (aq) will ultimately lead to the production of H 2 O and CO 2 gas as the H 2 CO 3 decomposes, giving us a new equation: HCl (aq) + NaHCO 3 (aq) NaCl (aq) + H 2 O (l) + CO 2 (g) If we eliminate all the spectator ions we would write the net ionic equation as H + (aq) + HCO 3-(aq) H 2 O (l) + CO 2 (g) Two other substances that will decompose and form gases are H 2 SO 3 and NH 4 OH: H 2 SO 3 (aq) H 2 O (l) + SO 2 (g) NH 4 OH (aq) H 2 O (l) + NH 3 (g)...
