The total ionic equation is: H + (aq) + NO 3 - (aq) + NH 3(aq) ® NH 4 + (aq) + NO 3 - (aq) The net equation is: H + (aq) + NH 3(aq) ® NH 4 + (aq) Acid-Base Reactions in Aqueous Solutions 4. Weak acids - weak bases forming soluble salts This is one example of many possibilities. acetic acid + ammonia The molecular equation is: CH 3 COOH (aq) + NH 3(aq) ® NH 4 CH 3 COO (aq) Acid-Base Reactions in Aqueous Solutions The total ionic equation is: CH 3 COOH (aq) + NH 3(aq) ® NH 4 + (aq) + CH 3 COO - (aq) The net ionic equation is: CH 3 COOH (aq) + NH 3(aq) ® NH 4 + (aq) + CH 3 COO - (aq) Acidic Salts and Basic Salts

Unformatted text preview: Acidic salts are formed by the reaction of polyprotic acids with less than the stoichiometric amount of base. For example, if sulfuric acid and sodium hydroxide are reacted in a 1:1 ratio. H 2 SO 4(aq) + NaOH (aq) NaHSO 4(aq) + H 2 O ( l ) The acidic salt sodium hydrogen sulfate is formed. If sulfuric acid and sodium hydroxide are reacted in a 1:2 ratio. H 2 SO 4(aq) + 2NaOH (aq) Na 2 SO 4(aq) + 2H 2 O ( l )...
