what is the net ionic equation for  AgNO3 + KI => AgI + KNO3 please correct and balance the equation too

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

`AgNO_3_(aq)+KI_((aq)) rarr AgI_((s))+KNO_3_(aq)`

This is already a balanced equation.

When we add KI to `AgNO_3` as the result AgI will precipitate. So the net reaction will be the reaction of `Ag^+` and `I^-` and the formation of AgI precipitate.

So the net ionic reaction will be;

`Ag^+_(aq) + I^(-)_(aq) rarr AgI_((s))`
