Question Description

Write the overall equation and net ionic equation for the reaction of Hl (hydroiodic acid) and potassium hydroxide. Include phases (states) in your equations. Enter the formula for water as H2O.

Overall equation:

Hl(aq) + KOH(aq) => H2O(l) + Kl(aq)         Somehow this answer is wrong. 

Net ionic equation:

H+(aq) + OH-(aq) => H2O(l)     This answer is right.


This is a neutralization reaction. The acid donates a proton (H+) to the base. The cation from the base combines with the anion from the acid, as in the following general reaction between an acid, HA, and a metal hydroxide base, MOH:

HA(aq) + MOH(aq) => H2O(l) + MA(aq)

The formula for hydroiodic acid is Hl. The formula for potassium hydroxide is KOH.
