    If I have a solution filed with silver ions. (Ag, dissolves in water) What would I do to be able to recover the silver metal?

    I think you would have to add HNO3 and a white precipitate would form in order for you extract silver ions. Going reverse, to dissolve the silver ions, you would have to add more ammonia.

    What would the white precipitate be? Beacuse I have to write it out in a formula.

    Is it possible to obtain solid silver by carrying out a displacement reaction? Placing a piece of a more reactive metal into the solution will displace the silver...
