# What products are obtained when barium chloride reacts with water?

Jul 17, 2017

Aquated barium ions, and aquated chloride ions......

#### Explanation:

$B a C {l}_{2} \left(s\right) \stackrel{{H}_{2} O}{\rightarrow} B {a}^{2 +} + 2 C {l}^{-}$

Because this reaction encompasses both bond-breaking, and bond making, it is clearly a manifestation of chemical change, in the products $B {a}^{2 +}$ and $C {l}^{-}$ are aquated ions...... On a microscopic level we probably gots ${\left[B a {\left(O {H}_{2}\right)}_{6}\right]}^{2 +}$, a coordination complex if you like of $B {a}^{2 +}$
