Solid {eq}\rm NaI {/eq} is slowly added to a solution that is {eq}0.010\ M {/eq} in {eq}\rm Cu^+ {/eq} and {eq}0.010\ M {/eq} in {eq}\rm Ag^+ {/eq}.

a.) Which compound will precipitate first.

b.) Calculate {eq}\rm [Ag^+] {/eq} when {eq}\rm CuI {/eq} just begins to precipitate.

c.) What {eq}\% {/eq} of {eq}\rm Ag^+ {/eq} remains in solution.


The separation of various cations in specific solution is done by their precipitation which involves their reaction with anions. This method further helps in determining various ions that acquire solution.
