2$ H^{+}(aq) + CO_{3}^{2−}(aq) → H_{2}O(ℓ) + CO_{2}(g)$

Work Step by Step

Sodium carbonate and sulfuric acid react to form sodium sulfate, water and carbon dioxide. The equation is: $Na_{2}CO_{3}(aq) + H_{2}SO_{4}(aq) → Na_{2}SO_{4}(aq) + H_{2}O(ℓ) + CO_{2}(g)$ The net ionic equation is: 2$ H^{+}(aq) + CO_{3}^{2−}(aq) → H_{2}O(ℓ) + CO_{2}(g)$
