    Chemical Equilibrium - Le Chatelier's Principle

    Please Explain What happened in detail in the equations below.

    Scenario:

    Equilibria Involving Sparingly Soluble Salts.

    Silver carbonate is only very slightly soluble in water. Silver can precipitated out from silver nitrate solutions by the addition of sodium carbonate salt according to the following equation:
    2AgNO3(aq) =NaCO3(aq)<-->Ag2CO3(s)+2NaNO3(aq)

    In a test tube we added 0.5ml of 0.1M Na2CO3. We added 10 drops of 0.01M AgNO3. Account for your observations and explain what happened in these equations:

    1. 2Ag+(aq)+CO32-(aq)<--->AgCO3(s)

    2. CO32-(aq)+2 H+(aq)<--->H2O(l)+CO2(g)

    3. 2Ag+(aq)+Cl-(aq)<--->AgCl(s)

    4. Ag+(aq)+2NH3(aq)<-->[Ag(NH3)2+(aq)

    5. NH3(aq)+H+(aq)<--->NH4+(aq)

    Thank you so much!
