Here are some questions to think about before, during, and after this week's experiment:
1. What happens when an ionic compound, like NaCl, dissolves in water?
2. What is the logical scheme for identifying each anion? Can you draw a flowchart for the identification of each?
3. Would it be possible to identify each of the four anions if they were mixed together? How? Or why not?
4. What is the general class of each test reaction? Precipitation? Acid-Base? Oxidation-Reduction?
