Title: writing ionic equations
Post by: sarahjane on March 22, 2004, 04:33:51 AM
how do you write the ionic equation for sodium chloride reacting with concentrared sulfuric acid???im confused!!!

Cl(-) + H(+) = HCl(g)

equation:
NaCl  + H2SO4(con)  =  NaHSO4 + HCl
not: Na2SO4
true or false?

both are true.

AWK's is the ionic equation for the reaction.

Haiph's is the usual chemical equation for the reaction.

Conc. H2SO4 can react with NaCl in two way:
at room temp:
NaCl + H2SO4 = HCl = NaHSO4
and at elevated temperature (say 100 C):
2NaCl + H2SO4 = 2HCl + Na2SO4
but ionic equation is always
H(+) + Cl(-)  = HCl

:D

how can i balance this equation? Hcl+Hso4=Hcl+H2O+H2

Do you mean H2SO4

Acids eventually can exchange protons, but nothing more

HCl+HSO4-=Cl-+H2SO4
