Which of the following substances is negligibly soluble in water?
The chemical formula of this chemical compound is AgCl. It is well known for its low solubility in water (because of its stable crystalline structure). Upon heating, this crystalline solid converts to silver and chlorine.
I have a degree in the sciences so AgCl it was.

Sodium Chloride - salt - ever heard of seawater? Ethanol - alcohol - ever drunk beer? Calcium chloride - used in most swimming pools. Silver chloride is thus the only one left.

Rebel White, ethane was not one of the choices. Ethanol was and it is water soluble.

A process of elimination for me too ... had to be silver chloride !!

Got it by way of process elimination.

Thanks to my 10th Grade science teacher.

The most important question (for me) remains a mystery, which is; What is Silver Chloride commonly used for? What is it's purpose?

I think this question is wrong. Ethane, which is composed, of carbon and hydrogen only has no polar group and is not water-soluble.

Finally got one right! Been on a losing streak...🙄

Simple for a chemist

I did not know but deduced by elimination. Kind of surprised so many missed it.

Julie M Prentice, Thank you, I was trying to figure out what it was used for. Once less Google look up, woohoo.
