What is the chemical equation for aqueous sodium chloride and aqueous silver nitrate react to form solid silver chloride and aqueous sodium nitrate?
AgNO_3(aq) + NaCl(aq) rarr NaNO_3(aq) + AgCl(s)darr This reaction is commonly used to illustrate basic solubility rules, and solubility equilibria. All nitrates are soluble, hence silver nitrate is soluble; and all halides are soluble, EXCEPT for AgX, PbX_2, and Hg_2X_2. Thus silver nitrate is soluble, but silver chloride precipitates from solution as a curdy white solid. We write the net ionic equation as: Ag^(+) + X^(-) rarr AgX(s)darr Silver chloride is a curdy white solid; silver bromide is a creamy yellow; and silver iodide is bright yellow. (On standing the silver halides tend to reduce to silver metal, and the precipitates darken.)
