Chemical Tests to Identify Ions and Gases

Session Information

Chemical tests to identify ions and gases

This has links to year 10 Chemistry when you tested for halide ions by precipitation reactions with silver nitrate.  We will look at how to write balanced equations and ionic equations for precipitation reactions and link it to C2 from year 11 where we perform a test for sulphate ions.

We will also look at the test for carbonate ions, flame tests and the test for the ammonium ion. Intrinsic to these tests will be identifying gases including oxygen, carbon dioxide and ammonia
