A lot of ionic compounds dissolve in water, dissociating into individual ions. But when two ions find each other that form an insoluble compound, they suddenly fall out of solution in what’s called a precipitation reaction. In this lesson, we learn about precipitation, precipitates, anions, cations, and how to describe and discuss ionic reactions.
