Provide a net ionic equation for H^2SO^4(aq)+Ca(OH)^2 (aq).
The net ionic equation focuses only on the ions in solution that react with each other. The other ions that don't participate in the reaction are called spectator ions and are not included in the equation. First let's separate each reactant into its...

H2SO4 + Ca(OH)2(aq) --> 2H2O + CaSO4
full ionic equation:
2H+ + (SO4)2- + Ca2+ + 2(OH)- --> 2H2O + Ca2+ + (SO4)2-
net ionic equation:
2H+ + 2(OH)- --> 2H2O
