Step 1: Write the total or full ionic equation.

 soluble ionic compounds separate and become ions in the chemical equation
compounds that are aqueous can break up into ions
insoluble compounds (solids, liquids, and gases) will not break up the solution

The given reaction is not yet balanced

K2SO4(aq) + CaI2(aq) → CaSO4(s) + KI(aq)

Balance K:

K2SO4(aq) + CaI2(aq) → CaSO4(s) + 2 KI(aq)


Balanced reaction:

K2SO4(aq) + CaI2(aq) → CaSO4(s) + 2 KI(aq)

▪ K2SO4(aq) → 2 K+(aq) + SO42-(aq)
▪ CaI2(aq) → Ca2+(aq) + 2 I-(aq)
▪ 2 KI(aq) → 2 K+(aq) + 2 I-(aq)
