Look at the chemical equation.

HI (aq) + LiOH (aq) → LiI (aq) + H2O (l)

a) What is the total ionic equation?

b) What is the net ionic equation?

c) What is/are the spectator ion(s)?

d) What is the salt that is formed?


a) The total ionic equation shows all the ions involved in the equation as follows;

H^+(aq) + I^-(aq) + Li^+(aq) + OH^-(aq) —-> Li^+(aq) + I^-(aq) + H2O(l)

b) The net ionic equation only involves the ions that truly participated in the reaction.

H^+(aq) + OH^-(aq) —-> H2O(l)

c) The spectator ions appear on both sides of the reaction equation. They are; I^- and  Li^+.

d) The salt formed is LiI (lithium iodide)
