Calculate the ion product to determine if a precipitate will form when 125 mL .00500 M sodium chloride is mixed with 125 mL .00100 M silver nitrate solution.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

NaCl + AgNO3 -> NaNO3 + AgCl

Net ionic equation = 2AgCl -> 2Ag + Cl2

[Ag+] before = .00100 after = .00050

[Cl-] before = .00500 after = .00250

My question was about the Qsp. Would the Qsp = (.00050)(.00250) or Qsp = (.00050)^2(.00250) I don't understand which co-efficients to look at, the one in the equation or the one in the net-ionic equation. Thanks in advance for the help.
