Can we assume that the AgNO3 reacts instantaneously when dropped into the salt(or with a double run when ran into the salt w// the AgNo3)
Yeah, it is a good reference for doing the calculations!

I forget where I read it, but the precipitation of silver halides is a very quick reaction, on the order of milliseconds. You pretty much just have to get the silver ion and the halide ion to bump into each other and if the concentration of silver and halide already in the solution has a solubility product higher than the Ksp of that silver halide, it quickly drops out of solution.
