This is for a lab:

find the balanced molecular, complete ionic, and net ionic equations:

1. NaHCO3 (aq) + CuSO4 (aq)
2. NaHCO3 (aq) + Pb(NO3)2(aq)


1. Molecular:
2NaHCO3 (aq) + CuSO4 (aq) => Cu(HCO3)2 (s?) + Na2SO4 (aq)
Complete Ionic: ?
Net Ionic: ?
Name the spectator ions, and reaction type (precipitation, redox, acid-base, etc.)

2. Molecular: NaHCO3 (aq) + Pb(NO3)2(aq) => NaNO3(aq) + Pb(HCO3)2 (s)
Complete Ionic: ?
Net Ionic: ?
Name the spectator ions, and reaction type (precipitation, redox, acid-base, etc.)

Help is much appreciated!

Any place where Alyson Hannigan can find me
2NaHCO3 (aq) + CuSO4 (aq) => Cu(HCO3)2 (s?) + Na2SO4 (aq)
Complete Ionic: ?
Net Ionic: ?
Name the spectator ions, and reaction type (precipitation, redox, acid-base, etc.)
Could they be meaning this:
Complete Ionic:
2Na^{+1} + HCO_3^{-1} + Cu^{+2} + SO_4^{-2} -----> ...

The problem I see is that the net ionic equation would be trivial: No species are broken down and formed into new ions.
