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.

  • chem -

    .7527*x=4.7g
    solve for x

  • chem -

    so the mass would be 6.24g?

  • chem -

    shouldn't it be less than the 4.7 g of silver plating??

  • chem -

    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
