If you mix KC2H3O2 and BaCl2 what is the molecular equation?

I got 2 KC3H3O2 (aq) + BaCl2 (aq) --> 2 KCl (aq) + Ba(C2H3O2)2 (aq) but I don't know if it is correct. My teacher just gives examples and doesn't explain how to do this.

  • Chemistry -

    Personally, I don't think a reaction will occur. No precipitate (insoluble material) is formed, no gas is formed, and I believe both of the products listed are strong electrolytes.
    Reasons for a reaction to proceed are as follows:
    1. A ppt is formed.
    2. A gas is formed.
    3. A weak electrolyte is formed.
    4. Redox reactions have separate rules.
