Question

Write a balanced chemical equation for the formation of silver chloride precipitate from solutions of sodium chloride and silver nitrate.
A) NaCl(aq) + AgNO3(aq) → NaNO3(aq) + AgCl(s)
B) NaNO3(aq) + AgCl(s) → NaCl(aq) + AgNO3(aq)
C) NaCl(aq) + AgNO3(aq) → NaNO3(s) + AgCl(aq)
D) 3NaCl(aq) + AgNO3(aq) → NaNO3(aq) + 3AgCl(s)

2 Answer

  • The answer would be option B. The chemical equation is already balanced! Hope this helps!
  • Answer: A) NaCl(aq) + AgNO3(aq) → NaNO3(aq) + AgCl(s)

    Explanation:

    (s) is solid

    (aq) is aqueous

    A silver chloride precipitate is formed which indicates a solid (s)
