Ba(OH)2 + H2SO4 = BaSO4 + H2O

Balanced Chemical Equation – Solution

Ba(OH)2 + H2SO4 → BaSO4 + 2H2O

The coefficients show the number of particles (atoms or molecules), and the indices show the number of atoms that make up the molecule. New substances are formed as a result of the rearrangement of the original atoms. As a result of a chemical reaction, atoms of chemical elements do not disappear anywhere and new ones do not appear, their number remains unchanged – this follows from the law of conservation of mass of substances.

Chemical Reaction Information

This is an acid-base reaction (neutralization): Ba(OH)2 is a base, H2SO4 is an acid. This is a precipitation reaction: BaSO4 is the formed precipitate.

Barium Hydroxide + Sulfuric Acid = Baryte + Water
