(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Manipulate equations 1-3 to show the formation of the overall equation 4.

Equation 4: HCl + NH_{3}--> NH_{4}Cl

2. Relevant equations

1. NaOH + HCl --> NaCl + H_{2}O

2. CH_{3}CO_{2}H + NaOH --> CH_{3}CO_{2}^{-}+Na^{+}+ H_{2}O

3. CH_{3}CO_{2}H + NH_{3}--> CH_{3}CO_{2}^{-}+NH_{4}^{+}

3. The attempt at a solution

I kept equation 1 and 3 the same, reversed equation 2 and summed them. My result is HCl + Na + NH_{3}--> NaCl +NH_{4}.

I have no idea how to get to equation 4 from here...
