Homework Help: Balanced equation for salts prepared from acid or base

  1. Oct 7, 2007 #1
    Hey Guys, I seem to be having some problem with this question. Can anybody help me out?

    Each of the following salts can be prepared from an acid and a base. Write the balanced molecular equation and net ionic equation for the preparation for each. Indicate states of the reactants and the products [(aq), (s), (l)]. Review solubility rules if necessary to determine the solubility of reactants.

    (a) Fe(NO3)3 (aq) (b) LiBr (aq) (c) KHCO3 (aq)

    For (a): 3HNO3 (aq) + Fe(OH)3 (s) > Fe(NO3)3 (aq) + 3H2O (l)
    Ionic Equation: 3H2+(aq) + Fe(OH)3 (s) > Fe3+ (aq) + 3H2O (l)

    For (b): HBr (aq) + LiOH (aq) > LiBr (aq) + H20 (l)
    Ionic Equation: H2+ (aq) + OH- (aq) > H2O (l)

    For (c): H2CO3 (aq) + KOH (aq) > KHCO3 (aq) +H2O (l)
    Ionic Equation: H2+ (aq) + OH- (aq) > H2O (l)

    I'm sure that these are incorrect, can anyone set me on the right path? Please.
