Unformatted text preview: After that a platinum wire was cleaned with concentrated (12M) hydrochloric acid in a small beaker. Diluted hydrochloric acid was added to compound B, and then a flame test was performed. The color of the flame was observed in order to indentify the compound if uncertain a qualitative test for B was done and recorded. It consisted of the addition of nitric acid to the solid in a small beaker. Then adding heat until it completely dissolved. Once it was dissolved flame test were performed again until a positive test was shown for a metal ion. A test for chloride ion was performed on compound C. This consisted of adding silver nitrate to compound C to observe a white precipitate of silver chloride, to confirm the presence of chloride ion in compound C. Later a flame test was performed to observe the color of the flame to try and identify a metal ion once again if unsure; a qualitative test was performed for compound C until a positive test for a metal ion was found and recorded....
