Will the double displacement reactions below actually occur? Why or why not? Can a double displacement reaction occur if both products are aq???
All of these are solubility equilibria, in the first case driven by the formation of insoluble
Silver chloride precipitates as a curdy, white solid.
Here, the equilibrium mixture would simply contain
And likewise for the last reaction.....
And here the equilibrium mixture contains, lithium, ammonium, nitrate, and sulfate ions in solution, with no precipitation of an insoluble material.
