    a simple double displacement reaction

    [tex] Ba (NO_{3})_{2} + 2Na OH \rightarrow 2NaNO_{3} + Ba (OH)_{2} [/tex]

    balance away!

    p.s. dexter is right since Ba has 2 valences there will be 2 OH ions in barium hydroxide

    The reaction provided is incorrect.

    [tex] Ba\left(NO_{3}\right)_{2}+NaOH\rightarrow NaNO_{3}+Ba(OH)_{2}\downarrow [/tex]

    Do you see the difference?
