Answer:

Well, barium sulfate is pretty insoluble stuff in aqueous solution.....

Explanation:

And so we gots....

#Ba^(2+) + SO_4^(2-) rarr BaSO_4(s)darr#

...as the net ionic equation.

The magnesium and nitrate ions are along for the ride.....and stay in solution.

The complete metathesis reaction is....

#Ba(NO_3)_2(aq) + MgSO_4(aq) rarr BaSO_4(s)darr+Mg(NO_3)_2(aq)#
