Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, October 6, 2010 at 11:03am.

A sample of solid KCl (potassium chloride) weighing 0.500 g is mixed with an unweighed sample of solid MgCl2 (magnesium chloride) and the mixture is then completely dissolved in water to form a clear solution. An aqueous solution of AgNO3 (silver nitrate) is then added to this mixture. A reaction occurs and insoluble solid AgCl (silver chloride) is precipitated. The equation for the reaction is as follows:

KCl(aq) + MgCl2(aq)+ 3AgNO3(aq) KNO3(aq)+ Mg(NO3)2(aq)+ 3AgCl(s)

When the reaction is over, both of the original chlorides, KCl and MgCl2, are completely used up. Analysis shows that 8.486 g of AgCl has been produced. Find the mass of the MgCl2 sample used to make the solid mixture.

Use the following atomic masses: Ag = 107.87, Cl = 35.45, K = 39.10, Mg = 24.31, N = 14.01
