The balanced net equation for BaCl2 (aq) + H2SO4(aq) → BaSO4(s) + HCl (aq) Ba^2+(aq) +SO4^2- → BaSO4 (s) ExplanationIonic equation is a chemical equation where the electrolytes in aqueous solution are written as dissociated ions.equation ionic is written using the following stepsStep 1: write a balance molecular equation of BaCl2 (aq) +H2SO4 (aq)→ BaSO4(s) +2HCl (aq)Step 2: Break all the soluble electrolytes into ions= Ba^2+ (aq) + 2 cl^-(aq) + 2H^+(aq) + SO4^2-(aq)→ BaSO4(s) + 2H^+(aq) +2 cl^- (aq)step 3: cancel the spectator ions on both sides of the equation ( ions that do not take place in the reaction) = 2 cl^- 2H and^+ ionsStep 4: write the net end of the equation is Ba^2+(aq) + SO4^2-(aq)→ BaSO4(s)
