Textbook Problem

Predict whether each of the following ionic compounds is likely to be soluble in water. If it is soluble, write the formulas of the ions present in aqueous solution.

(a) LiNO3

(b) CaCl2

(c) Cu(OH)2

(d) NaCH3CO2

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The solubility of the given ionic compound in water should be identified and if it is soluble the chemical formulas of the ions present in aqueous solution has to be written.

Concept Introduction:

Ions will form the ionic compound.  These ions are atoms gain or lose electrons, and it became positive or negative charge.  Metals will lose electrons, it become cations (positive charge).  Nonmetals will gain electrons, it becomes anions (negative charge).

Explanation

Lithium nitrate is dissolves in water, Lithium nitrate is composed of Li+and NO3
