To describe a precipitate and recall what happens in a precipitation reaction.
The video before shows us a few very important things:
A precipitation reaction is where two reactants swap partners and a solid is formed.
You will need to use your solubility rules on your sheet to predict the solid.
All other products/reactants are aqueous (aq).
\(AB + CD \longrightarrow AC + BD\)
Doing A Precipitation Reaction
Achieved: A word equation
Merit: A balanced symbol equation
Excellence: Predicting the precipitate (solubility rules)
Write a word equation, symbol equation and predict the precipitate for this reaction.
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.
