Chemical Reactions

  1. Jul 22, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    When copper metal is placed in a beaker containing a solution of silver nitrate, a reaction occurs which can be represented by the following equation:

    2AgNO3(aq) + Cu(s) -----> Cu(NO3)2(aq) + 2Ag(s)

    a) Give the net ionic equation to represent this reaction occurring
    b) Give one piece of evidence which would indicate that a chemical reaction has occurred.

    2. The attempt at a solution
    a) i have no idea how to write the ionic equation for this
    b) is it that a displacement has happened?

    Write ionic form first.

    What is copper color? What is silver color?
