what is the net ionic equation for the reaction of aqueous sodium chloride with aqueous silver nitrate.
Write out the general equation:
NaCl(aq) + AgNO3(aq) ---> AgCl(s) + NaNO3(aq)
Write out the total ionic equation. If it's a strong electrolyte, it is written as ions. If not, it's written as a molecule. NaCl, AgNO3, and NaNO3 are strong electrolytes, so they're written as ions. AgCl is a nonelectrolyte, so it's written as a molecule.
Na+(aq) + Cl-(aq) + Ag+(aq) + NO3-(aq) ---> AgCl(s) + Na+(aq) + NO3(aq)
Remove spectator ions and write the net ionic equation.
Ag+(aq) + Cl-(aq) ---> AgCl(s)
