Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The chemical formulas for barium nitrate and ammonium carbonate are Ba(NO3)2 and (NH4)2CO3. The reaction between barium nitrate and ammonium carbonate is a double displacement reaction. Barium nitrate reacts with ammonium carbonate to yield barium carbonate and ammonium nitrate. The balanced equation for the reaction is;

Ba(NO3)2 + (NH4)2CO3 ------ > BaCO3 + 2NH4NO3

The net ionic equation is;

Ba+2 + CO3-2 + 2NH4+1 + NO3-1 ------ > BaCO3 + 2NH4NO3

reaction is of weak acid and strong base

extent of reaction is above 50 percent
