This is extremely shameful...but i seriously can't get this question.
Balance the NET IONIC EQUATION.
No species should appear on both sides of a properly balanced reaction equation. Therefore some coeffcient must be "0"
NO3-(aq) + Cu(s) + H+(aq) --> H2O(l) + NO3-(aq) + Cu^2+(aq) + NO2(g)
Ultimately i got
1NO3-(aq) + 1Cu(s) + 2H+(aq) --> 1H2O(l) + 0NO3-(aq) + 1Cu^2+(aq) + 1NO2(g)
i have no idea why that's wrong...i balanced the COMPLETE IONIC EQUATION then i cancel out one of the NO3, then shouldn't that be right?
