Inorganic Analysis(Cations & Anions)

  1. Mar 2, 2004 #1
    Can someone help with these questions:

    a)Silver nitrate is added to a solution and a precipitate forms. This precipitate dissolves when concentrated ammonia is added. What anion was present in the original solution?
    b)When dilute hydrochloric acid is added to a solution, a gas is evolved. If this gas is passed through a solution containing calcium hydroxide, a white precipitate forms. What anion was present in the original solution?
    c)You are provided an aqueous solution which is blue. Addition of dilute hydrochloric acid produces a precipitate. The precipitate dissolves when the solution is heated to boiling. What two cations were in the original solution?

    surely you would get a table of anions and colour precipitate, with whether it dissolves completely in conc. ammonia.

    First post? So you apparently created an account just to write a unintelligible response to a post that's from five years ago?
