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.

    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.
