Need help fixing my answer, help would be appreciated. I am supposed to complete and balance this equation for an acidbase reaction. The problem is: HC2H3O2(aq)+Ca(OH)2(aq)>
I *thought* I completed it, getting 2HC2H3O2+Ca(OH)2=Ca(C2H3O2)2+2H2O , but it keeps saying my answer is incorrect. please help.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I wonder if it is because Ca(OH)2 is only partially soluble in water. So if you wrote it as Ca(OH)2(s) you may get a diff response. The equation is balanced correctly, its the net ionic eq.
