What is the product of mixing solid AgCl in a solution of HCl? Is it just AgCl + HCl, or is it AgCl2 + H2 (ignoring balancing right now).

  1. How much chemistry have you had? The simple answer is that you just have a mixture of HCl and AgCl. There is no way you will (or can) get H2 + AgCl2. When you study complex ions, and especially if the HCl is not very dilute, you will form complex ions of the type AgCl2^-, AgCl3^-2. In other words, AgCl is normally insoluble BUT it will dissolve in concentrated HCl due to the formation of complex ions.

    We add excess NaCl solution (58.44 g/mol) to 56 mL of a solution of silver nitrate (AgNO3 169.88 g/mol), to form insoluble solid AgCl. When it has been dried and weighed, the mass of AgCl (143.32 g/mol) is found to be 1.25 grams.
