    These are all ionic chemicals. Therefore in solution, they will dissociate into ions:

    K2CrO4 (aq) + BaCl2 (aq) ---> BaCrO4 (aq) + 2 KCl (aq)

    becomes...

    2 K+ (aq) + CrO42- (aq) + Ba2+ (aq) + 2 Cl- (aq) --> Ba2+ (aq) + CrO42- (aq) + 2 K+ (aq) + 2 Cl- (aq).

    Do you know what to do after that?

    Barium chromate is very insoluble in water(that is in aqueous solution, it is a solid).

    what the other poster meant to post should be

    2 K+ (aq) + CrO42- (aq) + Ba2+ (aq) + 2 Cl- (aq) --> BaCrO4 (s) + 2 K+ (aq) + 2 Cl- (aq).

    you can work the rest out.

    just thought i should remind you in your equation, all are spectator ions, lol!

    I know - there's no redox involved

    yeah, but as you might know, barium sulphate is insoluble in water, chromate being of similar size to sulphate, one could guess barium chromate is also quite insoluble.

    plus, i do know barium chromate is very insoluble in water.
