Worksheet: Identifying Salts

In this worksheet, we will practice identifying salts via combinations of qualitative analyses, including flame, precipitation, and reactivity tests.


Which compound will react with Ag+ ion in water, [Co(NH)]Cl363 or [Co(Cl)](NH)336? What is formed?

  • A[Co(NH)]Cl363; AgCl is formed.
  • B[Co(NH)]Cl363; NHCl4 is formed.
  • CBoth will react with silver in water; AgCl and NHCl4 are formed.
  • D[Co(Cl)](NH)336; AgCl is formed.
  • E[Co(Cl)](NH)336; NHCl4 is formed.
