You will combine two solutions and analyze the reaction to see if a precipitate forms.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
A precipitate is a solid, insoluble product that is formed when two solutions chemically react. Precipitation reactions typically involve ionic compounds that have been dissolved in water. These compounds in an aqueous state react and form products that are insoluble in water. A set of solubility rules enables the prediction or explanation of how precipitation reactions work and what products they will produce.
