What is the correct net ionic equation, including all coefficients, charges, and phases, for the following set of reactants? Assume that the contribution of protons from H2SO4 is near 100 %.

Ba(OH)2(aq) + H2SO4 (aq) →

Many reactions take place in aqueous solution. When potential reactants are mixed, a reaction will occur if there is some driving force that favors the formation of products. It is often convenient to categorize reactions in terms of these driving forces: precipitate formation, in which an insoluble solid is formed,
weak electrolyte formation, as in a neutralization reaction involving water, or transfer of electrons, as in a redox reaction.

These reactions can be represented by full molecular equations, which contain all species in the reaction mixture, or by net ionic equations, which show only the species that actually undergo a
change. The latter does not contain the spectator ions, which do not undergo a net change or do not take part in the reaction.
