How do you write out the equation for this reaction: Sodium phosphate reacts with calcium nitrate to produce sodium nitrate plus calcium phosphate?

Nov 26, 2016

$N {a}_{\text{3"PO_"4" (l) + Ca(NO_"3")_"2" (s) -> NaNO_"3" (s) + Ca_"3"(PO_"4")_"2}} \left(s\right)$

Explanation:

Sodium phosphate = $N {a}_{\text{3"PO_"4}}$.
Calcium nitrate = Ca(NO_"3")_"2".

Sodium nitrate = $N a N {O}_{\text{3}}$.
Calcium phosphate = $C {a}_{\text{3"(PO_"4")_"2}}$.

$N {a}_{\text{3"PO_"4" (aq) + Ca(NO_"3")_"2" (aq) -> NaNO_"3" (aq) + Ca_"3"(PO_"4")_"2}} \left(s\right)$

States might be wrong :/

... but hope this helps :)
