Problem: You want to analyze a silver nitrate solution.You could add solid KCl to the solution to precipitate out AgCl(s). What mass of KCl is needed to precipitate the silver ions from 16.0 mL of 0.210 M AgNO3 solution?

FREE Expert Solution

Use stoichiometry and the balanced equation to determine the mass of 0.250 KCl

MM of KCl is 74.55 g/mol

AgNO3 (aq) + KCl (aq) → AgCl (s) + KNO3
