Silver chloride, often used in silver plating, contains 75.27% Ag. Calculate the mass of silver chloride in grams required to make 4.7 g of silver plating.
solve for x
so the mass would be 6.24g?
shouldn't it be less than the 4.7 g of silver plating??
6.24 is correct; it should be MORE than 4.7. Which weighs more, Ag or AgCl? So if you are converting Ag to AgCl, it must be more.
oh i see! thanks
