Silver Carbonate: Chemical Formula & Solubility

1. Silver Carbonate: Chemical Formula & Solubility

Silver Carbonate is used in several different reactions. In this lesson, we will learn about the chemical formula of silver carbonate, as well as why it has such a lot solubility.

Silver Chromate: Formula & Molar Mass

2. Silver Chromate: Formula & Molar Mass

Silver chromate is used in developing pictures and identifying cells using the Golgi method. In this lesson we will learn about the physical properties of silver chromate, including its formula, solubility and molar mass.

Silver Oxide: Formula, Decomposition & Formation

3. Silver Oxide: Formula, Decomposition & Formation

Silver chemically bonded with oxygen yields silver oxide. In this lesson, we'll investigate silver oxide's formula, how it can be formed, and possible decomposition.

What is Silver Sulfide? - Chemical Formula & Uses

4. What is Silver Sulfide? - Chemical Formula & Uses

Silver sulfide is a compound formed between silver and sulfur. In this lesson, we will learn the formula for silver sulfide and where it is commonly found.

Silver Sulfide: Solubility & Conductivity

5. Silver Sulfide: Solubility & Conductivity

Silver sulfide is the chemical combination of silver and sulfur. In this lesson, we will investigate two properties of silver sulfide: its solubility and its electrical conductivity.

Silver Sulfate: Chemical Formula & Uses

6. Silver Sulfate: Chemical Formula & Uses

There are two varieties of silver sulfate. These compounds depend on how many electrons silver loses. In this lesson, we will determine the equations of these two compounds and what they are used for.

Silver Sulfate: Molar Mass & Solubility

7. Silver Sulfate: Molar Mass & Solubility

Silver sulfate comes in two varieties, silver(I) sulfate, and silver(II) sulfate. In this lesson, we will investigate these two compounds including determining their molar masses, and their solubilities in water.

Silver Perchlorate: Formula & Solubility

8. Silver Perchlorate: Formula & Solubility

Silver is a positive ion that can bond with a percholate anion to form an ionic compound. In this lesson, we will determine the formula of silver percolate, learn about two reactions forming it, and investigate its solubility.

Silver Hypochlorite: Formula, Solubility & Molar Mass

9. Silver Hypochlorite: Formula, Solubility & Molar Mass

Silver hypochlorite is an ionic compound between silver and the polyatomic ion hypochlorite. In this lesson, we will determine its chemical formula, its solubility, and its molar mass.

Silver Cyanate: Structure, Properties & Formula

10. Silver Cyanate: Structure, Properties & Formula

What compounds contain silver atoms? In this lesson, we will be learning about a specific silver-containing compound called silver cyanate by studying its chemical formula, structure, and a few of its important chemical properties.

Silver Cyanate Preparation & Uses

11. Silver Cyanate Preparation & Uses

Silver cyanate is used a variety of reactions and helped scientists discover isomers. We will examine two main methods for preparing silver cyanate in this lesson.

Silver Cyanate vs. Silver Fulminate

12. Silver Cyanate vs. Silver Fulminate

The discovery of silver cyanate led to an important scientific discovery - isomers. In this lesson we will learn how silver cyanate and silver fulminate are different, despite having the same chemical formula.

Silver Fulminate: Solubility, Reaction & Synthesis

13. Silver Fulminate: Solubility, Reaction & Synthesis

Silver fulminate is a very unstable compound. In this lesson, we will discuss its formula, how it is produced in a chemical reaction and its solubility.
