Problem Details

The balanced net ionic equation for the reaction of Ba(NO3)2(aq) with K2SO4 (aq) which produces BaSO4(s) is: 

a) Ba2+(aq) + 2NO3-(aq) + 2K+(aq) + SO42-(aq) → BaSO4(s) + 2K+(aq) + 2NO3-(aq)

b) H+(aq) + OH-(aq) → H2O(l)

c) Ba2+(aq) + 2NO3-(aq) + 2K+(aq) + SO42-(aq) → Ba2+(aq) + SO42-(aq) + 2K+(aq) + 2NO3-(aq)

d) Ba2+(aq) + SO42-(aq) → BaSO4(s)

e) Ba2+(aq) + 2NO3-(aq) + 2K+(aq) + SO42-(aq) → BaSO4(s) + 2KNO3(s)
