Chemistry Analysis Tests

Hydrogen
Squeaky pop when lit in air and reacts with oxygen to make water
1 of 21
Oxygen
Glowing splint reignites in gas sample
2 of 21
Carbon dioxide
extinguish a flame or bubble it in lime water to make it turn cloudy
3 of 21
Chlorine
Blue litmus paper to red then bleaches white. Makes damp starch iodide paper turn blue black.
4 of 21
Fluoride
Sodium nitrate makes no precipitate
5 of 21
Chloride
Sodium nitrate makes white precipitate
6 of 21
Bromide
Sodium nitrate makes very pale cream precipitate
7 of 21
Iodide
Sodium nitrate very pale yellow precipitate
8 of 21
Lithium
Turns red in flame
9 of 21
Sodium
Turns orange in flame
10 of 21
Potassium
Turns lilac in flame
11 of 21
Calcium
Turns yellow red in flame
12 of 21
Copper
Turns green blue in flame
13 of 21
Aluminium
Sodium hydroxide produces a white precipitate and when excess sodium hydroxide is added the aluminium hydroxide precipitate dissolves
14 of 21
Calcium
Sodium hydroxide produces a white precipitate and when there's more there is no change
15 of 21
Magnesium
Sodium hydroxide produces a white precipitate and when there's more there is no change
16 of 21
Copper (II)
Sodium hydroxide produces a blue precipitate
17 of 21
Iron (II)
Sodium hydroxide produces a green precipitate
18 of 21
Iron (III)
Sodium hydroxide produces a brown precipitate
19 of 21
Sulfate ions
Solution being tested added to dilute hydrochloric acid and few drops of barium chloride are added and a white precipitate is formed if positive
20 of 21
Carbonate ions
Detected when acids are added. Carbon dioxide bubbles if present. Lime water goes from clear to milky when carbon dioxide is bubbled through.
