Escience 5: qualitative analysis of ions

  

pre-lab Questions

1. What is one difference between qualitative and quantitative analysis? 

2. Use Table 1 to determine which metal ion would be identified as the reactant if a reaction with ammonia produces a violet complex? Use scientific reasoning to explain your answer. 

3. Use the pH scale to describe an acidic solution and a basic solution. At what pH would a solution be considered neutral? Why?

Post-Lab Questions

1. What ion is contained in the unknown solution? Use your results as evidence. 

2. Imagine that the unknown solution contains aqueous ammonium sulfate, which is commonly used in fertilizer. Write a balanced equation for the precipitation of barium sulfate after mixing aqueous ammonium sulfate and barium chloride.

 3.  Identify and discuss any sources of error for this experiment. How could you mitigate error?
