`Ba_3(PO_4)_2`

`Ba^2^+` - Barium ion.

`(PO_4)^3^-` – phosphate ion.

Name – Barium Phosphate.

It is a solid and with both the ions are aqueous.

Molar mass = 601.92 g/mol.

Finding molar mass

Ba –(137.327)*3 = 411.981

P – 30.97*2 = 61.94

O – 16*8 = 128

Sum of all the variables will give the molar mass of barium phosphate.

= 411.981+61.94+128

=   601.921g/mol
