Predict the type of reaction (if any) that occurs between each pair of substances. Write balanced molecular equations for each. If no reaction occurs, write NO REACTION.
(a) aqueous hydrochloric acid and aqueous copper(II) nitrate
(b) liquid pentanol (C5H12O) and gaseous oxygen
(c) aqueous ammonium chloride and aqueous calcium hydroxide
(d) aqueous strontium sulfide and aqueous copper(II) sulfate
a) aqueous hydrochloric acid and aqueous copper(II) nitrate
The products of the reaction between copper(II) nitrate and hydrochloric acid are copper(II) chloride and nitric acid. To determine whether either of these products is insoluble (a solid precipitate), you need to consult a solubility table like the one below:
Notice that copper(II) chloride is aqueous, meaning that it is dissolves in water, so it is not a precipitate (solid). Nitric acid is not on the solubility table, however,...
