    Dissolve a chloride into a water, add excess nitric acid, then pour silver nitrate solution. A white precipitate is formed. What's it ?

    Silver Chloride ????? [itex] AgCl [/itex]
    Consider the chloride of a unvalent metal:
    [tex] X^{+}+Cl^{-}+H_{3}O^{+}+Ag^{+}+2NO_{3}^{-}\rightarrow XNO_{3}+AgCl\downarrow+HNO_{3}+H_{2}O [/tex]
