##### Solubility problem
« on: April 04, 2004, 06:32:03 PM »
Suppose that a 10 mL sample of a solution is to be tested for Cl - ion by addition of 1 drop (0.2 mL) of 0.17 M AgNO3. What is the minimum number of grams of Cl - that must be present in order for AgCl(s) to form?

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

You need the solubility product constant of Silver Chloride. Only if the product of the concentration of aq Ag+ cation and aq Cl- exceed the solubility product then precipitation of silver chloride will occur.

if you get Ksp of AgCl = 1.77×10-10
http://www.ktf-split.hr/periodni/en/abc/kpt.html
then
[Cl-]= Ksp/[Ag+]
[Ag+]=  {0.17*0.2}/10.2
then calculate  [Cl-]  then caculate
mass of Cl-
