Unformatted text preview: sulfuric acid and sodium chloride. This confirms our belief that the unknown compound is sodium sulfate because sulfate is soluble with hydrogen and sodium is soluble with chlorine, as seen in the reaction. Na 2 SO 4 + Na 2 CO 3 Na 2 SO 4 + NaCO 3 Sodium sulfate and sodium carbonate do not react and keep their form as solids. This confirms our belief because sulfate cannot combine with CO 3 to form a compound. 2NaOH + Na 2 SO 4 2NaOH + Na 2 SO 4 Sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfate do not react to form an aqueous solution. This confirms our belief because sulfate cannot combine with hydroxide because hydroxide is not soluble with sulfate....
