Products formed by mixing Sodium chloride and Potassium iodide?

  1. Apr 15, 2013 #1
    I've looked at this website so many times and have been saved by it! Now I need a lil help please! I can finish all the calculations and balance it myself if I can just get the equation!

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Sodium chloride is placed in a solution of Potassium iodide. What products are formed?

    Additional notes from the professor say not to treat this as a net ionic equation as two products are formed.

    2. Relevant equations
    I know that Sodium chloride is NaCl and Potassium iodide is KI.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    My guess here is that it would be NaCl + KI → NaI + KCl?
    I think that is right but the extra information about it not being a net ionic equation and all has just made me a little unsure! Thank y'all so much for your help!

    I have no idea what is the expected answer. There are no two products, there is no reaction at all. The only "product" is a solution containing four different ions.
