Complete Ionic Equations

Post by kbnash »

Barium chloride reacts with sodium phosphate
3BaCl2(aq) + 2Na3(PO4)(aq) ----> NaCl(Aq) + 6Ba3(PO4)2(s)

How do I make this into a complete ionic equation?

Which ions only do a reaction here?
Its only Barium and phosphate.

3 Ba2+ + 2 PO4 3- => Ba3(PO4)2(s)

Sodium and Chloride are spectator ions and keep dissolved.
