Solution: Will precipitation occur when the following solutions are mixed?Na2CO3 and AgNO3

Solution: Will precipitation occur when the following solutions are mixed?Na2CO3 and AgNO3

Problem

Will precipitation occur when the following solutions are mixed?

Na2CO3 and AgNO3

Solution

We have to determine if a precipitate will form when solutions of Na2CO3 and AgNO3 are mixed.


precipitate is an insoluble solid substance formed when solutions of two soluble substance are mixed together.


Recall:

Carbonate salts are generally insoluble except the carbonates of group 1 metals (Li, Na, K, Rb and Cs) and ammonium (NH4+).

Nitrates are soluble salts.
