Predict whether the following double-replacement reaction will produce a precipitate: MgCl2 + Li2CO3 MgCO3 + 2 LiCl. No; all products are soluble Yes; the MgCO3 will precipitate Yes; the LiCl will precipitate Yes; both the MgCO3 and the LiCl will precipitate
I think the correct answer from the choices listed above is the second option. This is a double displacement reaction. Both of the reactants are soluble, but when they are combined for a reaction, magnesium carbonate will form a precipitate. Hope this answers the question.
