Acid-Base Reaction

  1. Nov 18, 2005 #1
    I have 2 homework problems..

    1. Draw the Lewis structures for the reactants and products in the neutralization reaction between NH4Cl and NaOH. You may omit spectator ions.

    According to a Precipitation diagram in my book, it shows that all the elements are spectator ions, or is this different because it is not aqueous? If so, how can I tell the spectator ions and the reactants? I know strong acid + strong base = water + salt... would the reaction be NH4Cl + NaOH = H2O + NaCl + NH3?

    2. Draw the Lewis structures for the reactants and products in the acid-base reaction between aqueous HCl and NH3. You may omit spectator ions.

    I don't see these on the Precipitation diagram.. again how would I know the spectator ions and reactants?

    Thank you! :)
