An aqueous solution is a solution in which water is solvent. It is shown in chemical reactions by appending “aq” to the relevant chemical formula.
In short, it represents the state of an element or compound.
For instance, let us take an example of a chemical reaction
Ba (s) + 2H2O (l) ——– Ba (OH)2(aq) + H2 (g)
Here it is known that “s” stands for solid, “l” stands for liquid, and “g” stands for gas. But what does the “aq” mean?
“Aq” refers to aqueous that means “in water.”
Here if we talk about the chemical reaction, as we have Ba (OH)2 in solution in water.
