Unformatted text preview: the H 2 O molecules in water dissociate to form H + and OH- ions. Therefore, any reaction that leads to the formation of water will have a net ionic equation. Let's look at a classic example of an acid reacting with a base. HCl (aq) + NaOH (aq) NaCl (aq) + H 2 O (l) Removing the spectator ions we obtain the net ionic equation: H + (aq) + OH-(aq) H 2 O (l)...
