Question

$$NaCl_{(aq)}$$ gives a white precipitate with $$AgNO_3$$ solution but $$CCl_4$$ or $$CHCl_3$$ does not, because:


A
NaCI is a covalent compound and forms AgCl as white ppt
loader
B
NaCl is an ionic compound and forms AgCl as white ppt
loader
C
CCl4 and CHCl3 are ionic compound
loader
D
none of these
loader

Solution

The correct option is B $$NaCl$$ is an ionic compound and forms $$AgCl$$ as white ppt
$$NaCl$$ being an ionic compound and thus reacts with $$AgNO_3{(aq)}$$ to give ionic reaction, forming $$AgCl$$ as white ppt. $$CCl_4$$ and $$CHCl_3$$ being covalent do not furnish $$Cl^-$$ ions in solution.
$$NaCl + AgNO_3 \rightarrow AgCl + NaNO_3$$
