Answer:

#CH_3COOAg (aq) rightleftharpoons Ag^+ (aq) + CH_3COO^(-)(aq)#

Explanation:

Aqueous silver acetate, which can be written as #CH_3COOAg (aq)# or #AgC_2H_3O_2 (aq)#, is a weak electrolyte and a highly soluble compound, and it dissociates into #Ag^+# and #CH_3COO^-#; the equation for its dissociation in water is thus

#CH_3COOAg (aq) rightleftharpoons Ag^+ (aq) + CH_3COO^(-)(aq)#

The right and left arrows symbolize the solution is saturated and the reaction is in a state of equilibrium.
