What produces a chemical change?

One example is the reaction between the aqueous solutions lead nitrate, Pb(NO3)2 and potassium chloride, KCl. They react to form solid (a precipitate) lead chloride, PbCl2, and aqueous potassium nitrate, KNO3. The balanced equation is Pb(NO3)2(aq) + KCl(aq) ---> PbCl2(s) + KNO3(aq)

What is aqueous silver nitrate and potassium bromide combine to form a precipitate?

When a substance is aqueous, it means that it is dissolved in water. In aqueous reactions, the reaction is always a double replacement reaction, meaning one ion of a compound will switch with an ion from the other compound. A precipitate is an substance that is not soluble in water, meaning it cannot be dissolved. You can tell whether or not a substance is precipitate using a solubility chart. Therefore, using a solubility chart, we can tell that the product silver bromide will be the precipitate and the product potassium nitrate will be aqueous.
