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 # Ba^(+2)(aq) + CO_3^(-2)(aq) -> BaCO_3(s)#


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 Na^(+1)(aq) + 1 CO_3(-2)(aq) + 1 Ba^(+2)(aq) + 2 NO_3^(-1)(aq) ->#

# 2 Na^(+1)(aq) + 2 NO_3^(-1)(aq) + 1 BaCO_3(s) #

Since the Sodium ions #Na^(+1)(aq) # and Nitrate #NO_3^(-1)(aq)#
Do not Change they are not part of the net ionic equation.
