can anyone help me with salt solubility? I am supposed to decide what is and isn't soluble and I don't understand them. I really just need help with understanding the first two, hopefully I will be able to understand the others.
I looked them up and one is and two isn't. I don't understand why though. I couldn't find any reasoning behind them being so different.

Here are the general rules: http://www.csudh.edu/oliver/chemdata/solrules.htm
The first is soluble because any compound with nitrate is soluble.
The second is insoluble because, although most sulfates are soluble, silver sulfate is an exception.

Ok that does make sense I suppose my problem is that I am also to label the rule I used to identify it. I think that the only rules I to use are the one provided for my which are five;
1. Salts of group 1 and ammonia are soluble.
2. Acetates and nitrates are soluble.
3. Binary compounds of group 17, except F, are soluble with metals,
except Ag, Hg+, and Pb.
4. All sulfates are soluble, except those of Ba, Sr, Pb, Ca, Ag, and Hg+.
5. Except for those in rule 1, carbonates, hydroxides, oxides, sulfides, and phosphates are insoluble.
And I am having a hard time understanding the rules I guess because #4 says that Ag are insoluble which is in both problems.
Ok. #4 only says that sulfates with Ag are insoluble. #2 says that all nitrates are soluble :-)
Ok so if a problem has a characteristic that is considered soluble, that's dominating to non soluble characteristic?
Ag isn't generally insoluble. Just with sulfates and in binary compounds with group 17 elements.
