Write the balanced equation for the reaction of nickel(II) chloride hexahydrate when heated. 20 2. Write the balanced equation for the reaction of hydrochloric acid and sodium carbonate. 3 Cs) a9) Discussion: Is the nickel(II) ion in each of these reactions the Lewis acid or the Lewis base? How do you know? Are the other chemicals (CT, H:O, and NH:) the Lewis acid or Lewis base? How do you know? 2. What happens to the color of the nickel(lI) compounds when a different atom bonds to the nickel(II) ion? What does the conductivity data tell you about the two acids? 4. 5. 3. What does the reactivity data tell you about the two acids? What did you learn as a result of doing this experiment?
