The reaction of copper (II) sulfate CuSO4 and ammonium hydroxide NH4OH will yield Copper (II) hydroxide Cu(OH)2  and ammonium sulfate (NH4)2SO4. 

The chemical equation for this reaction would be

CuSO4 + NH4OH --> Cu(OH)2 + (NH4)2SO4

this reaction is also called double displacement reaction.

 

The above chemical equation is not yet balanced. To balance the equation, we should carefully count the number of atoms in the left and in the right side of the chemical equation.

The balance chemical equation for this would be:

CuSO4+ 2NH4OH ---> (NH4)2SO4+ Cu(OH)2  --> final answer
