Problem: Does a reaction occur when NiCl2(aq) is added to a test tube containing Zn(NO3)2(aq)?

FREE Expert Solution

reactant

NiCl2(aq) → Ni2+ (aq) + 2 Cl- (aq)

Zn(NO3)2(aq) → Zn2+ (aq) + 2 NO3- (aq)


product

Ni2+ (aq) + 2 NO3- (aq) → Ni(NO3)2 → all nitrates are soluble → aqueous

Zn2+ (aq) + 2 Cl- (aq) → ZnCl2 → soluble chloride  → aqueous
