what is silver acetate soluble in?
Look up Ksp values.
Martin17, the reason I asked what silver acetate is soluble in is because it is the only acetate that is insoluble in water.
At 20[sup]o[/sup]C, approximately 1.04 gr. of AgC[sub]2[/sub]H[sub]3[/sub]O[sub]2[/sub] will dissolve in 100 cc of H[sub]2[/sub]O, which is far more soluble than CaOH.
It seems that you are right; the liquid looks mirky. The book that I got the solubility rules from is a 3rd edition CliffsAP Chemistry by Gary Thorpe, pg116. Looks like some author screwed up on a test book. :evil:
