Answer

Balanced molecular equation: ${Al(OH)_3}{(s)} + 3 HNO_3(aq) -> 3 H_2O(l) + Al(NO_3)_3(aq)$ Net ionic equation: $Al(OH)_3(s) + 3H^+(aq) -> 3H_2O(l) + Al^{3+}(aq) $

Work Step by Step

1. Complete the equation: ${Al(OH)_3}{(s)} + HNO_3(aq) -> H_2O(l) + Al(NO_3)_3(aq)$ 2. Balance the equation: ${Al(OH)_3}{(s)} + 3 HNO_3(aq) -> 3 H_2O(l) + Al(NO_3)_3(aq)$ 3. Write the ionic equation: $Al(OH)_3(s) + 3H^+(aq) + {3NO_3}^-(aq) -> 3H_2O(l) + Al^{3+}(aq) +{3NO_3}^-(aq) $ 4. Simplify it, by removing the ions that appears in both sides$(NO_3)^-$: $Al(OH)_3(s) + 3H^+(aq) -> 3H_2O(l) + Al^{3+}(aq) $
