An aqueous solution of silver nitrate contains 5.00 g of silver nitrate. To this solution is added sufficient barium chloride to precipitate all the silver as silver chloride. What mass, in grams, of dry silver chloride can be obtained?
You can do this one of several ways, first, as a reaction to precipate the silver.
The second, is just to figure out how much silver is in 5g AgNO3. This is much easier. The percent of Ag in AgNO3 is
