    Ionic solubility of aqueous solutions

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    The only possible ions in an aqueous solution are ion, barium, carbonate, chloride and nitrate.

    The following are observed:
    i) the original solution contains only dissolved species.
    ii) adding silver ion to the solution produces no precipitates.
    iii) adding sulfate ion to the original solution produces a white precipitate.

    a) Which ion(s) are definitely present in the original solution?
    b) Which ions(s) are definitely absent from the original solution?

    OK...I think there is a typo in that it says the only ions are: ion (iron?), etc.

    With that here we go:

    Chloride is NOT in it as AgCl is insoluble and would ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution examines a group of ions (barium, carbonate, chloride and nitrate) and their presence and solubility in aqueous solution.
