A few easy Chemistry Questions

  1. Jan 23, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    1) Show how each of the following acids ionize in aqueous solution. HI

    2)Write the reaction between H2SO4 and LiOH

    3)Write ionization equation of X-, a weak base

    4) Write an equation showing the oxide ion acting as a strong base

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    1) for this it duznt state water is involved, so do you just do HI -> H+ + I- and both of them are aqueous?

    2)H2S04 + LiOH -> H20 + LiHSO4 (all are aqueous except water)

    3) No idea. I put X- + H2O -> OH- + HX but it duznt say it's reacting with anything?

    4) O2- + H2PO4- -> OH- + HPO4-2 (all aqueous)

    Aqueous solution means it's in water.

    H2SO4 + LiOH -> H20 + Li2SO4

    That should be right..just have to balance now.
