## Question:

Write the balanced molecular equation, complete ionic equation, and net ionic equation for the reaction between aqueous solutions of copper(II) chloride and calcium nitrate.

## Solubility Rules:

A precipitate is an insoluble product formed from the mixing of two different compounds. But, not all reactions involving two different compounds result in the formation of a precipitate. To predict whether a reaction will yield a precipitate, the solubility rule for ionic compounds will be very handy. For instance, the solubility rule predicts that the common salts of alkali metals, ammonium, nitrates, and acetates are soluble. On the other hand, most carbonates and hydroxides are insoluble.
