Magnesium sulfate reacts with potassium phosphate to yield magnesium phosphate and potassium sulfate. It is a double displacement reaction. The ionic equations for the reaction are;

MgSO4 ------ > Mg+2 + SO4-2

K3(PO4) ------ > 3K+1 + PO4-3

The net ionic equation for the reaction is;

3Mg+2 + 2PO4-3 + 3SO4-2 + 6K+1 ------ > Mg3(PO4)2 + 3K2SO4

The net balanced equation for the reaction is;

3MgSO4 + 2K3(PO4) ------ > Mg3(PO4)2 + 3K2SO4

Three moles of magnesium sulfate are reacted with two moles of potassium phosphate to produce one mole of magnesium phosphate and three moles potassium sulfate.
