### How can you determine that a coin is not pure silver if you know the mass and the volume of the coin?

The idea is to divice the mass by the volume, to get the
density. Then compare to the density of silver.

### What mass of silver chloride can be produced from 1.33 L of a 0.129 M solution of silver nitrate?

The formula for silver nitrate is AgNO3, and it has a gram
formula mass of 169.87. The formula shows that each formula mass
contains one silver atom, which has a gram atomic mass of 107.8688.
Therefore, the mass fraction of silver in silver nitrate is
107.869/169.87.
1.33 L of a 0.129 M solution of silver nitrate, by the
definition of molarity, contains (0.129)(1.33) or 0.17157 formula
masses of silver nitrate, or 29.145 g of silver nitrate, or 18.507
g of silver.
The formula for silver chloride is AgCl, showing that it also
has one silver atom per formula mass. The formula mass of silver
chloride is 143.32. Therefore the ratio of mass of silver chloride
to that of silver is 143.32/107.869, so that the mass of silver
chloride that can be produced from the 29.145 g of silver present
in the given amount of silver nitrate solution is
29.145(143.32/107.869) or 38.7 g of silver chloride, to the
justified number of significant digits.
