Unformatted text preview: Net ionic equation You do it! Metathesis Reactions Metathesis reactions occur when two ionic aqueous solutions are mixed and the ions switch partners. AX + BY → AY + BX Metathesis reactions remove ions from solution in two ways: 1. form predominantly unionized molecules like H 2 O 2. form an insoluble solid Ion removal is the driving force of metathesis reactions. Metathesis Reactions 1. Acid-Base (neutralization) Reactions...
