H2O is a liquid and so it is represented as H2O(l)  int the chemical equation.

In case of salts which are solid like sodium chloride, zinc chloride when dissolved in water are represented as NaCl(aq) and ZnCl2(aq) in the chemical equation.

Gases released in the reactions are represented with an upward arrow. Compounds like carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide , hydrogen sulphide are gases and are represented with an upward arrow.
