How do you balance and translate this reaction: #Cu(s) + AgNO_3(aq) -> Cu(NO_3)_2(l) + Ag(s)#?
See the explanation.
This chemical equation means:
One mole of solid copper plus two moles of aqueous silver nitrate produce one mole of copper(II) nitrate plus two moles of solid silver.
This is a single replacement reaction in which the metal copper replaces the metal silver.
