Asked by Kinshuka Sharma | 12th Jul, 2014, 05:50: PM

Expert Answer:

Precipitation means the formation of a solid in a solution during a chemical reaction. When the chemical reaction occurs, if a solid forms, it is called a precipitate. This can occur when an insoluble substance, the precipitate, is formed in the solution due to a reaction or when the solution has been supersaturated by a compound. The formation of a precipitate is a sign of a chemical change.
