Question #29692

what would be the best process to figure out a solution to be either potassium iodide or solver nitrate when given only .1M NaCl, .1M Pb(NO3)2, .1M Na2CO3, beakers, flasks, graduated cylinders, filters, filter paper, and balances?

Expert's answer

When adding sodium chloride to silver nitrate the white precipitate of silver chloride is rolled . The process is described by the equation

AgNO_{3}(aq) + NaCl (aq) ------> AgCl + NaNO_{3}

When added to the lead nitrate the solution of potassium iodide the precipitate of lead iodide falls in the form of brilliant golden plates. The process is described by the equation

Pb(NO_{3})_{2} + 2KI --> PbI_{2}(s) + 2KNO_{3}

AgNO

When added to the lead nitrate the solution of potassium iodide the precipitate of lead iodide falls in the form of brilliant golden plates. The process is described by the equation

Pb(NO
