Homework Help: Writing a chemical equations

  1. Nov 17, 2013 #1
    Compose the equation for the reaction of flouride with potassium nitrate. State the spectator ions.

    Here is my attempt:

    K(NO3)2 + F- = N2O6 + KF

    Or is it

    K(NO3)2 + NaF = Na(NO3)2 + FK

    I think the spectator ions are K- and NO3

    Any ideas?

    1. Your formulas of nitrates are wrong.

    2. Are you sure there is a reaction taking place?
