CHEM 101: Molecular, Total, and Net Ionic Equations and Determining the Main
Reaction in Synthetic and Replacement Reactions
The Molecular Ionic Equation will be the balanced chemical equation of a
reaction with the correct reduced coefficients. As any, the molecular ionic equation
is simply the reaction in which occurs, but unlike just writing out the reactants and
products, the molecular ionic equation must include the original states of the
reactants and the terminal states of the products in order to be able to properly
determine if a reaction has occurred, and to also be able to write out our total and
net ionic equations from it.
In writing the total ionic equation, all that is needed is to rewrite the original
balanced equation, but if the state of the compound or element is aqueous, then we
must write out the components of that compound or element separately and write
down their respective ion charges along with their respective mole coefficients in
front of their symbols, and then report the aqueous solution compound as an
addition of 2 components of the original solution. Here is an example of a total
ionic equation:
