    A precipitate (calcium phosphate) is formed. That shows a chemical reaction occurred.

    Net ionic:

    3Ca^2+(aq) + 3PO4^3-(aq) ---> Ca3(PO4)2(s)

    Spectator ions:

    Na^+(aq) and Cl^-(aq)

    Illustrate the reaction in the well plate.

    The mixed solutions will turn cloudy white. This is due the finely-divided bits of calcium phosphate floating about. Put the solution in a centrifuge and the the calcium phosphate will all be driven to the bottom of the tube.
