Answer:

The chemical equation is

#3"BaCl"_2 (aq) + "Al"_2("SO"_4)_3 (aq) -> 3"BaSO"_4 (s) + 2"AlCl"_3 (aq)#

Explanation:

Barium Sulfate (#"BaSO"_4#) being highly insoluble, will form a white precipitate.

Answer:

A white precipitate of barium sulfate.

Explanation:

#3BaCl_2(aq) + Al_2(SO_4)_3(aq) rarr 3BaSO_4(s)darr +2AlCl_3(aq)#

Barium sulfate is quite insoluble in aqueous solution, #K_(sp) =1.08xx10^-10#.

Alternatively, because the aluminum salts are along for the ride, we could write the net ionic equation:

#Ba^(2+) + SO_4^(2-) rarrBaSO_4(s)darr#
