Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0H2SO3 is sulfurous acid, Ca(OH)2 is calium hydroxide, a base. A reaction between an acid and base always produces water and some kind of salt. the H+ from the acid and the OH from the base form water. The other product will be some combination of calcium (+2) and sulfite (2). Balancing comes after getting the reactants and products correct first.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That cant be right becaus there is no OH on the right side....or did you break it up somehow?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Along with the H+ ion, the hydroxide goes into making water. H_2O and HOH are the same thing
