Homework Help: Net ionic equation balance

  1. Jan 30, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Aqueous solutions of barium chloride and sodium fluoride are mixed to form a precipitate of barium fluoride.


    2. Relevant equations

    i'm not sure but i put.
    BaCl + NaF = BaF2 + NaCl2


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm pretty much confused whether you balance the equation. Also i'm not sure when the net equation is completed. Please help.

    "i'm not sure but i put.

    Check your formulas for barium chloride and sodium chloride.

    Besides, you are asked for net ionic, so far you have not tried to look at ions.
