Net Ionic Equation: Acid/Base Rxn

  1. Sep 18, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    "Write the net ionic equation for the reaction between HBr(aq) and NH_3(aq)"


    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    H^+(aq) + Br^+(aq) + NH_4^+(aq) + OH^-(aq) --> NH_4Br(aq) + H_2O(l)

    [edit]
    It's an online application that is a bit finicky, and I was curious if I'm at least heading the right direction, and if I'm not, then where exactly I'm messing up? I also posted this in the Chemistry forum, but then found this one. Thanks in advance.

    Thank you very much. The Barium should've remained an ion, and NH_3 is not equivelent to NH_4 + OH, so the net ionic equation is H^+(aq) + NH_3(aq) --> NH_4^+(aq).
