solutions containing Ca2+(aq).
solutions containing Ca2+(aq) do not give a precipitate with ammonia solution?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
ions contained in ammonia solution:
NH4+ and OH- and H+
Only OH- has attraction to Ca2+.
Ca2+ forms white precipitate with OH- ion; the compound is called lime water.
OH- ion form precipitates with all mental ion UNLESS lithum and sodium.
Ca(OH)2 redissolves in carbon dioxide and forms Ca(HCO3)2 only.
Therefore, solution cantaining Ca2+ give white precipitate with ammonia solution.Source(s): CE chemistry
