Solution: A solution containing AgNO3 is mixed with a solution of NaCl...

Question

A solution containing AgNO3 is mixed with a solution of NaCl to form a solution that is 0.10 M in AgNO3 and 0.075 M in NaCl. What will happen once these solutions are mixed?

Ksp (AgCl) = 1.77 × 10 -10.

A) Nothing will happen since the molar solubility of AgCl is higher than the solution concentrations.

B). Nothing will happen since NaCl and AgNO3 are both soluble compounds.

C) Silver chloride will precipitate out of solution, leaving an unsaturated solution of AgCl

D) Silver chloride will precipitate out of solution, leaving a saturated AgCl solution.

E) There is not enough information to say anything about this solution.
