    I'm unsure on this equation, please can someone tell me if I have done this right or if not, where I have gone wrong? Thanks

    Word Equation: Copper (II) Carbonate + Nitric Acid --> Copper Nitrate (V) + Carbon Dioxide + Water

    CuCo3 (s) + 2HNO3 (aq) --> CU(NO3)2 (aq) + CO2 (g) + H2O (l)

    CuCO3 + H+ + 2NO3- --> CU2+ + 2NO3- + CO2 + H2O

    CUCO3 (s) + H+ (aq) --> CU2+ (aq) + CO2 (g) + H2O (l)

    Apologies if that was confusing to follow

    You only have one H+ ion in the third step despite it being 2HNO3

    Look at the final step, where did the second H+ to make H2O come from?

    Also, watch out for capitalisation "CuCo3" means Copper with three cobalts bonded "CuCO3" means copper carbonate.
