The total ionic equation shows all of the equation, even the spectator ions. The net ionic equation shows the net change after spectator ions have been removed.

What components are included in a net ionic equation?

A net ionic equation includes only the components that are active in the reaction. Spectator ions are removed, unlike in total ionic equations.


What happens to a spectator ion in a net ionic equation?

A spectator ion is an ion that does not take part in the reaction. If you write out a normal equation. look for something that is the same on both sides and does not change state. This is a spectator ion and can be crossed out of the net ionic equation


How is a net ionic equation written from a complete ionic equation?

By removing from the complete equation any ions that occur in the same number on both sides of the complete equation.


What is a net ionic equation what species are shown in such an equation and which species are not shown?

A net ionic equation only includes those components that are directly involved in the reaction. Spectator ions are not included.


What is the net ionic equation of CuSO4 plus KOH?

First Derive molocular equation using oxidation numbers CuSO4+KOH-->Cu(OH)2+K2SO4 Then Balance CuSO4+2KOH-->Cu(OH)2+K2SO4 Then determine spectator ions by noting which elements do not change oxidation numbers Remove your spectator ions and you have your net ionic equation


Why is the term spectator ions used?

A spectator ion is used, because it just "spectates". It does not get involved in the reaction. Spectator ions can be seen in a net ionic equation, but they are canceled out because they do not react. to form the equation of the reacting ions.


What is a constituent ion?

Constituent Ions are Spectator Ions. Spectator Ions are ions that appear on both sides of the chemical equation. (Spectator Ions appear as both reactants and as products). They do not participate in the reaction and they are NOT shown in the Net Ionic Equation.


What chemicals are present in a net ionic equation?

The are only soluble ions without spectator ions.


Can the complete ionic equation and the net ionic equation for a double replacement reaction ever be the same?

Yes. If both compounds are insoluable in water then the complete/overall ionic equation and the net ionic equation will look the same. The only way they look different is if there are spectator ions(ions that appear on both sides of the equation).
