# What is the ionic equation for Na2CO3 + Ba(NO3)2 -> BaCO3 + 2NaNO3?

## It is the reaction between sodium carbonate and barium nitrate. It would be super helpful if you could also show the net ionic equation.

The net ionic equation is $B {a}^{+ 2} \left(a q\right) + C {O}_{3}^{- 2} \left(a q\right) \to B a C {O}_{3} \left(s\right)$

#### Explanation:

Both reaction compounds are ionic and are aqueous in solution.

The products are a relatively insoluble compound and a compound that remains in solution as ions.

The complete ionic equation is

$2 N {a}^{+ 1} \left(a q\right) + 1 C {O}_{3} \left(- 2\right) \left(a q\right) + 1 B {a}^{+ 2} \left(a q\right) + 2 N {O}_{3}^{- 1} \left(a q\right) \to$

$2 N {a}^{+ 1} \left(a q\right) + 2 N {O}_{3}^{- 1} \left(a q\right) + 1 B a C {O}_{3} \left(s\right)$

Since the Sodium ions $N {a}^{+ 1} \left(a q\right)$ and Nitrate $N {O}_{3}^{- 1} \left(a q\right)$
Do not Change they are not part of the net ionic equation.
