# Problem: Copper metal dissolves in a silver nitrate solution. The balanced equation for the reaction is:Cu(s) + 2AgNO3(aq) → Cu(NO3)2(aq) + 2Ag(s).A. Starting with 150.ml of 0.250M silver nitrate, AgNO 3, how many moles of AgNO3 is that?B. If a 1.00g of copper metal is added to the solution would it all dissolve? Justify your answer. (Hint: What does a balanced equation allow you to do?)

###### FREE Expert Solution

The given balanced chemical equation is:

Cu(s) + 2 AgNO3(aq) → Cu(NO3)2(aq) + 2 Ag(s)

We will use the given concentration of AgNO3 and its volume to calculate its number of moles.

Recall that:
