How do you write an ionic equation?

What does a net ionic equation show?
The net ionic equation is the chemical equation that shows only those elements, compounds, and ions that are directly involved in the chemical reaction.
What is the net ionic equation of the reaction of?
The net ionic equation is a chemical equation for a reaction that lists only those species participating in the reaction. The net ionic equation is commonly used in acid-base neutralization reactions, double displacement reactions, and redox reactions.
What is an ionic formula?
Ionic bonds form instead of covalent bonds when there is a large difference in electronegativity between the ions. The positive ion, called a cation, is listed first in an ionic compound formula, followed by the negative ion, called an anion. A balanced formula has a neutral electrical charge or net charge of zero.
What is a full ionic equation?
The complete ionic equation indicates all of the dissociated ions in a chemical reaction. The net ionic equation cancels out ions that appear on both sides of the reaction arrow because they essentially don’t participate in the reaction of interest. The ions that are canceled out are called spectator ions.
