Silver Nitrate solubility in other materials

Silver Nitrate is not very soluble in concentrated Nitric Acid:

     1000 grams concentrated HNO3 (~70%) dissolve 2 grams AgNO3

Silver Nitrate is a little more soluble in dilute Nitric Acid:

     1000 grams 2HNO3, 3H20 dissolves 33.3 grams AgNO3 at 20°C (68°F)

     1000 grams 2HNO3, 3H20 dissolves 166 grams AgNO3 at 100°C (212°F)

Silver Nitrate is slightly soluble in Alcohols:

     1000 grams absolute Methyl Alcohol dissolves 37.2 grams AgNO3 at 20°C (68°F)

     1000 grams absolute Ethyl Alcohol dissolves 31.0 grams AgNO3 at 20°C (68°F)

     1000 grams 95% Ethyl Alcohol dissolves 73 grams AgNO3 at 50°C (122°F)

     1000 grams 60% Ethyl Alcohol dissolves 581 grams AgNO3 at 50°C (122°F)

     1000 grams 40% Ethyl Alcohol dissolves 983 grams AgNO3 at 50°C (122°F)

     1000 grams 20% Ethyl Alcohol dissolves 2,140 grams AgNO3 at 50°C (122°F)

Silver Nitrate is slightly soluble in Acetone:

     1000 grams Acetone dissolves 3.5 grams AgNO3 at 14°C (57°F)

     1000 grams Acetone dissolves 4.4 grams AgNO3 at 18°C (64°F)

LAB NOTES: Silver Nitrate and Nitric Acid
The WRONG formula for Silver Nitrate + Nitric Acid:
Nearly all chemistry texts and thousands of websites list the following formula:
     Ag + HNO3 → AgNO3

The CORRECT formula for Silver Nitrate + Nitric Acid:
     4Ag + 6HNO3 → 4AgNO3 + NO + NO2 + 3H2O
