Determine the concentration of unknown silver nitrate solution

For the following problem, we’ll consider the reaction

NaCl(aq) + AgNO3(aq) ⟶ NaNO3(aq) + AgCl(s)

Note that all of the aqueous species in the above reaction exists as ions in solution:

  • NaCl(aq) exists as Na+ and Cl-
  • AgNO3 exists as Ag+ and NO3-
  • NaNO3 exists as Na+ and NO3-
  • AgCl(s) is a white solid

The solution labeled "Solution 3" in the virtual lab stockroom contains an unknown amount of AgNO3. Design and perform an experiment to determine the mass of AgNO3 that was present in the "Solution 3" solution.

  • Masses can be measured with the scale in the Stockroom Tools menu.
  • To simulate decanting or filtering a solution, you can right click (or two-finger click on Mac) on a piece of glassware and select "Remove solid" or "Remove liquid" from the menu
