Mole Ratios: Copper and Silver Nitrate—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

The reaction of copper wire with silver nitrate in aqueous solution produces delicate silver crystal growth on the wire surface and the color of copper(II) ions in solution. With the Mole Ratios: Copper and Silver Nitrate—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, determine the number of moles of reactants and products in the reaction of copper and silver nitrate and calculate their mole ratio, then write the balanced chemical equation for the reaction.
