    What color of precipitate confirms Ag+

    • A.

      Yellow

    • B.

      Black

    • D.

      White

    Correct Answer
    D. White
    Explanation
    When a white precipitate forms, it confirms the presence of Ag+ ions. This is because the compound silver chloride (AgCl) is a white precipitate. When Ag+ ions react with chloride ions (Cl-) in a solution, they form insoluble silver chloride, which appears as a white solid. Therefore, the formation of a white precipitate indicates the presence of Ag+ ions.

    What color of precipitate indicates the presence of Hg++

    • A.

      Yellow

    • B.

      Black

    • C.

      Orange

    • D.

      White

    Correct Answer
    D. White
    Explanation
    When a white precipitate forms, it indicates the presence of Hg++ ions. The formation of a white precipitate occurs due to the reaction between Hg++ ions and certain reagents, such as chloride ions or sulfur ions. This reaction leads to the formation of an insoluble compound, which appears as a white solid. Therefore, the presence of a white precipitate is a characteristic reaction for detecting the presence of Hg++ ions.

    • D.

      White

    Correct Answer
    A. Yellow
    Explanation
    When a yellow precipitate is formed, it confirms the presence of Cd++ ions. This is because certain compounds of cadmium, such as cadmium sulfide (CdS), are yellow in color and can form a precipitate when Cd++ ions react with suitable reagents. Therefore, the formation of a yellow precipitate indicates the presence of Cd++ ions in the solution.

    What color of precipitate confirms the presence of Cu++ (acidify)

    • A.

      Yellow

    • B.

      Black

    • C.

      Red

    • D.

      White

    Correct Answer
    C. Red
    Explanation
    The color red confirms the presence of Cu++ ions when the solution is acidified. This is because when Cu++ ions react with acid, they form a complex called cupric ion (Cu2+), which has a red color. Therefore, the presence of a red precipitate indicates the presence of Cu++ ions in the solution.

      Deep Blue

    Correct Answer
    D. Deep Blue
    Explanation
    A deep blue color of solution confirms the presence of Cu++. This is because Cu++ ions have a characteristic deep blue color when they are in solution. Therefore, if the solution turns deep blue, it indicates the presence of Cu++ ions.

    Correct Answer
    A. Yellow
    Explanation
    The color yellow confirms the presence of As+3 because when As+3 reacts with certain reagents, such as ammonium molybdate or silver nitrate, a yellow precipitate is formed. This is a characteristic reaction of arsenic in its +3 oxidation state. The formation of a yellow precipitate indicates the presence of As+3 in the solution.

      White or gray

    Correct Answer
    D. White or gray
    Explanation
    The color of precipitate that confirms the presence of Sn++ is white or gray. This is because when Sn++ ions react with certain reagents, such as ammonium sulfide or hydrogen sulfide, they form insoluble compounds that appear as white or gray precipitates. This color change is a characteristic reaction of Sn++ ions and can be used to identify their presence in a solution.

    What color of flame confirms the presence of Na+

    • A.

      Intense Yellow

    • B.

      Black

    • C.

      Orange

    • D.

      White or gray

    Correct Answer
    A. Intense Yellow
    Explanation
    The intense yellow color of a flame confirms the presence of Na+. When sodium ions are heated, they emit a characteristic yellow light. This is due to the excitation of electrons in the sodium atoms, followed by their subsequent relaxation to lower energy levels, releasing energy in the form of visible light. Therefore, the intense yellow color of the flame is a clear indication of the presence of sodium ions.

      Orange

    • D.

      Reddish violet

    Correct Answer
    A. Yellow
    Explanation
    A yellow precipitate confirms the presence of K+. This is because when K+ ions react with certain compounds, such as chromate or dichromate ions, they form a yellow precipitate. This reaction is commonly used as a test for the presence of potassium ions in chemical analysis.

    Does turning of red litmus paper into blue indicates the presence of NH4+?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When red litmus paper turns blue, it indicates a basic or alkaline solution. This is because red litmus paper is red in acidic solutions and blue in basic solutions. The presence of NH4+ ions, which is the ammonium ion, can cause a solution to become basic. Therefore, if red litmus paper turns blue, it suggests the presence of NH4+ ions.
