Write a balanced net ionic equation for the following reaction BaCL2(aq)+H2SO4(aq) -> BaSO4(s)+HCL(aq) I know the balanced equation for this reaction would be BaCl2 + H2SO4 ---> BaSO4 + 2HCl but I need help writing the balanced net ionic equation. With steps pls.

Best Answer: write the equation of molecular and .... BaCl2(s) + H2SO4(aq) --> BaSO4(s) + 2HCl(aq) write the equation in ionic as.... BaCl2(s) + H+ + HSO4^- --> BaSO4(s) + 2H+ + 2Cl - remove the H+ from both sides and write the equation net ionic..... BaCl2(s) + HSO4^- --> BaSO4(s) + H+ + 2Cl - If you place BaCl2 solid sulfuric acid, would rapidly acquire a layer of insoluble BaSO4 that will prevent the further reaction of the chloride of barium. The same is true if you took a block of BaCl2 and placed a drop of the solution of H2SO4. The solid BaSO4 forms to block further reaction. You get HCl gas only if the small amount of solution is saturated with HCl.
