    Apparently when barium chloride and sodium sulfate react the ions which remain in the filtrate are Cl- and Na+. I really don't understand why and I have to be able to answer similar questions for possible alternatives such as potassium chloride and calcium sulfate.

    Can somebody give me an explanation/ way of working it out please?

    I'll be very grateful!

    because barium sulphate is insoluble and so removed from solution as a precipitate. This leaves the other ions in solution.
