what happens when silver nitrate solution reacts with sodium chloride solution?
When silver nitrate solution is added to sodium chloride solution, sodium nitrate and a white precipitate of silver chloride is formed. This is an example of double displacement reaction. Following is the chemical equation for the reaction
AgNO3 (aq) + NaCl (aq) → AgCl (↓) + NaNO3 (aq)

ilver chloride, AgCl, and nitrate ion, NO3-, are formed. AgCl is insoluble so a white precipitate is formed (most chloride salts are white).
