Chemistry again! Book gives different Net Ionic Equations for same reaction?
Many months and chapters ago, back in my first semester of chemistry, we learned all about net ionic equations. It was straightforward. I am leaving out the aqueous and liquid phase notations throughout.
HCl + NaOH -> NaCl + H2O
So ionic equation stuff is
I just went back and reviewed as well since I haven't done this in 6 months.
But now, in the same book, 8 chapters later, we are dealing with acid base equilibrium stuff and for the same HCl + NaOH reaction it tells me that the net ionic equation is:
-> 2 H2O
There is no explanation for why there are two different ways of writing this, how I would know which one is being looked for if all I am told is to write the net ionic equation, etc. Please enlighten me as to what my book is leaving out and apparently just assuming I have inferred in this process.
