CHEMICALS TESTS FOR ANIONS AIM Identify anions present in various salts by chemicals testing APPARATUS Spatula Test tubes and racks Pipettes Chemicals used Hydrochloric acid Nitric acid solution Barium chloride (harmful) Silver nitrate solution Metal salts used for testing Potassium chloride (KCI) Iron chloride (FECI3) Sodium sulphate (NASO4) Calcium carbonate (CACO3) Lead carbonate (PBCO3) Tap water RISK ASSESMENT Potassium chloride Explosive when mixed with combustion materials. Never use fabric gloves to handle substance. Harmful if inhaled or swallowed. Solution labelled if stronger then 2m .it may cause your eyes and skin to irritate. These substances are dangerous with material like sugar, wood, clothes and etc. ...read more.


Then get it checked by doctor. METHOD * Put potassium chloride salts in a test tube using a spatula. * Add few drops of nitric acid using a pipette. If the salt fizzes (gives gas off), record the result in the table below and add acid drops 1 by 1 until it no longer fizzes. * Add distilled water to 1cm depth. Mix well. * Add silver nitrate using a clean pipette. Record the results. * Put the same salt into another test tube. Using a spatula. * Add few drops of hydrochloric acid using a clean pipette. if it fizzes (gives off gas) ...read more.


NO FIZZ BUT PECEPITATE Lead carbonate FIZZES NO FIZZ PECEPITATE AND FIZZES PECEPITATE Tap water NO FIZZ FIZZES NO FIZZ NO FIZZ CONCLUSION After all the chemical experiments I found out which chemicals fizzes and precipitate when it is mixed with other chemicals as l have shown above in the table. As you see above that when nitric acid is mixed with calcium carbonate it fizzes so as lead carbonate and when mixed with hydrochloric acid it fizzes as well because it has carbonate material that makes it fizz. Where as some the material are not fizzing when they mixed with the acid because they don't get those chemicals, which make them fizz. ?? ?? ?? ?? ATIF ESHAQUE KAMAL 1 ...read more.

    - Calcium carbonate is highly flammable , should not be used near flames - Lead is toxic , hands must be washed after use METHOD: 1. potassium chloride salt was put in a test tube 2. then nitric acid was inserted in the same test tube 3.

  2. Production of Epsom salts

    It weighed 0.539g. 3. I added the magnesium to the acid and waited for it to react. There was some magnesium left at the end of the experiment. 4. I poured the liquid into an evaporating basin 5. I then heated the evaporating basin containing the solution to remove half

  1. I am part of a small chemical company who are attempting to sell Epsom ...

    Initially I was going to change the surface area of magnesium, however in my tests this did not prove to be the most practical variable to change. In my tests with 0.5M of 25cm3 sulphuric acid, the reaction occurred at a fast rate, which caused difficulty when reading the measurements.

  2. Investigation into the efficiency of various indigestion tablets.

    Firstly, it seemed like the phenolphthalein didn't suit my experiment. There was a weak base to strong acid reaction taking place and therefore phenolphthalein did not work. Methyl orange covers the neutralisation point and is therefore more useful. Methyl orange is yellow if pH is above 4 and red at pH below 4.
