Re: Net Ionic Equations for Redox Reactions?
When dealing with redox reactions, are they special in the ways of breaking apart? For instance:
2MnO(s) + 5PbO2(s) + 10 HNO3(aq)----> 2HMnO4(aq) + 5Pb(NO3)2(aq) + 4H2O(l)
If they are solid, the do not come apart correct? and the 2HmnO4(aq) I was told doesn't come apart either and same goes for the water. I can't narrow it down to a net ionic equations from my total ionic equation because none of them are spectator ions... Confused... Thanks in advance!
