Precipitation Reactions

Ngā Whāinga Ako

The video before shows us a few very important things:

  1. Ionic bonding
  2. Word formulas
  3. Symbol formulas
  4. Precipitation reaction

Precipitation Reaction

Doing A Precipitation Reaction

  1. Achieved: A word equation
  2. Merit: A balanced symbol equation
  3. Excellence: Predicting the precipitate (solubility rules)


Write a word equation, symbol equation and predict the precipitate for this reaction.

More Practice

This video demonstrates three more precipitation reactions. For each, write an observation that would indicate to you that a precipitation reaction is occurring, then a word and symbol equation and predict/explain the precipitate with your solubility rules.
