If the quantity of silver nitrate is capable of precipitating all the chloride ion from the sodium chloride sample should be calculated. Concept Introduction: The balanced chemical reaction is as follows: Ag + ( a q ) + Cl − ( a q ) → AgCl ( s ) Here, chloride ion precipitates out from the solution in the form of AgCl salt. The mass of sodium chloride dissolved in water is 5.45 g, this is then treated with a solution containing 1.15 g of silver nitrate. From the precipitation reaction, 1 mol of Ag + ion reacts with 1 mol of Cl − to form 1 mol of AgCl.

Chapter 9, Problem 55QAP
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

If the quantity of silver nitrate is capable of precipitating all the chloride ion from the sodium chloride sample should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

The balanced chemical reaction is as follows:

Ag+(aq)+Cl(aq)AgCl(s)

Here, chloride ion precipitates out from the solution in the form of AgCl salt.

The mass of sodium chloride dissolved in water is 5.45 g, this is then treated with a solution containing 1.15 g of silver nitrate.

From the precipitation reaction, 1 mol of Ag+ ion reacts with 1 mol of Cl to form 1 mol of AgCl.
