Problem: You are given a 1.50-g mixture of sodium nitrate and sodium chloride. You dissolve this mixture into 100 mL of water and then add an excess of 0.500 M silver nitrate solution. You produce a white solid, which you then collect, dry, and measure. The white solid has a mass of 0.641 g.If you had an extremely magnified view of the solution (to the atomic-molecular level), list the species you would see (include charges, if any).
