🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Shaffer's class at KSU.
We are asked to identify the precipitate formed when two salts are mixed together. We will refer to the solubility rules in order to determine if an insoluble product (precipitate) is formed or not.
•Soluble Ionic Compounds:
▪ Group 1A ions (Li+, Na+, K+, etc.) and Ammonium ion (NH4+) are soluble
▪ Nitrates (NO3-), Acetates (CH3COO- or C2H3O2-), and most Perchlorates (ClO4-) are soluble
▪ Cl-, Br-, and I- are soluble except when paired with Ag+, Pb2+, Cu+, Hg22+
▪ Sulfates (SO42-) are soluble except those of Ca2+, Sr2+, Ba2+, Ag+, and Pb2+
• Insoluble Ionic Compounds:
When the following solutions are mixed together, what precipitate (if any) will form?
d. K2S(aq) + Ni(NO3)2(aq)
