Removing H_3O^+ ions from aq. solution!

  1. Dec 3, 2006 #1
    What is the most common chemical method for removing H_30^+ ions in aqueous solution? Write a net ionic equation which describes this method.

    It's called titration, adding alkali to the solution. Just write any acid base titration equation.

    [tex]HCl + NaOH = NaCl + H_2O[/tex]
    [tex]H^+ + OH^- = H_2O[/tex]

    I don't prefer [itex]H_3O^+[/itex], it's simply false sophistication.

    Nope, it is called neutralization. Titration is a way of quantitative analysis.
