  1. Apr 4, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    When writing chemical formulas in Mastering, indicate the physical states using the abbreviation , , or for solid, liquid, or gas, respectively. Use for aqueous solution.

    Write the total ionic equation (also known as the complete ionic equation) for the reaction of lithium carbonate with hydrochloric acid. Be sure to include the charges on the ionic species.

    2. The attempt at a solution
    This is what i came up with Li2CO3(aq)+2HCl(aq)---->H2CO3(l)+2LiCl(aq)
