Problem: A 450.0-mL sample of a 0.257-M solution of silver nitrate is mixed with 400.0 mL of 0.200 M calcium chloride. What is the concentration of Cl- in solution after the reaction is complete?

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Staff's class at UCSD.

FREE Expert Solution

Let’s predict the product formed when silver nitrate and calcium chloride are mixed together then write the overall reaction:

Silver nitrate

• Silver → common +1 charge → Ag+
• Nitrate → polyatomic ion → NO3- 

 Silver nitrate → AgNO3 → all nitrates are soluble

Calcium chloride

• Calcium → Group 2A → +2 charge → Ca2+
• Chloride → Group 7A → -1 charge → Cl-

Calcium chloride → CaCl2 → chlorides are soluble except when paired with Ag+, Pb2+, Cu+, and Hg22+
