Chemical Reactions and Qualitative Analysis: An Inquiry Activity—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

The EPA regulates the amounts of many cations in drinking water with precise quantitative analysis using special instruments, but scientists also measure qualitatively to simply know if these impurities are present. With the Chemical Reactions and Qualitative Analysis: An Inquiry Activity—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, design and carry out a sequence of chemical reactions for the separation and identification of iron(III), silver and zinc ions in water.
