Good evening. SO4 is the most common form of the sulfur/oxygen polyatomic anions, so it is referred to as sulfate. The cation is called by its regular name, so this molecule is Barium sulfate.
I hope this helps


Thank you very much. I am just in an introduction course for chemistry and so I do not have much knowledge in it.
