QUESTION

# What is the net ionic equation of the reaction of MgSO4 with Pb(NO3)2?

SO_(4(aq))^(2-) + Pb_((aq))^(2+) -> PbSO_(4(s))

The balanced equation for this reaction is

MgSO_(4(aq)) + Pb(NO_3)_(2(aq)) ->Mg(NO_3)_2(aq) + PbSO_4(s)

The complete ionic equation is

Mg_((aq))^(2+) + SO_(4(aq))^(2-) + Pb_((aq))^(2+) + 2NO_(3(aq))^(-) -> PbSO_(4(s)) + Mg_((aq))^(2+) + + 2NO_(3(aq))^(-)

If you eliminate spectator ions, which are the ions thatcan be found both on the reactants' and on the products' side, you'll get the net ionic equation

SO_(4(aq))^(2-) + Pb_((aq))^(2+) -> PbSO_(4(s))

Lead (II) sulfate is insoluble in aqueous solution and will form a precipitate.

Here is another example which illustrates how to write a net ionic equation. video from: Noel Pauller
