Question

 2.76 g of silver carbonate on being strongly heated yields a residue weighing

Solution

Correct option is

2.16 g

 

Unlike other metal carbonates that usually decomposes into metal oxides liberating carbon dioxide, silver carbonate on heating decomposes into elemental silver liberating mixture of carbon dioxide and oxygen gas as

                     

                    MW = 276g               2 × 108 = 216 g 

Hence, 2.76 g of Ag2CO3 on heating will give
