What type of reaction produces a precipitate?
SO SORRY FOR LONG EXPLANATION - but I'm trying to make stuff clear.
Precipitate can be formed when non-soluble substance forms a solid product in a chemical reaction.
How to predict Precipitate?
To determine if a precipitate will form you should know the ions involved and be able to apply the solubility rules.
These are the solubility rules:
1) Group 1 metals on periodic table - all soluble
2) Nitrates (
3) Chlorides (
4) Sulfates (
5) Hydroxides (
6) Carbonates (
Let's say sodium chloride (NaCl) and lead nitrate (
This is what precipitate looks like
