Precipitation Reactions and General Solubility Rules

This Precipitation Reactions and General Solubility Rules lab resource also includes:

The more you know, the better your predictions! Using a hands-on lab experiment, collaborative groups collect information about ionic interactions. They record data describing the precipitate of reactions and use their information to write net ionic equations and develop general solubility rules.
