Flame Test: K + ,NH 4 + ,Na + Ph Test:HO - ,HOSO 3 - and NH 4 + -PH can be estimated by indicators. - HO - is strong base (high ph). - HOSO 3 - is strong acid (low ph). - NH 4 + is weak acid (ph<7.0). NH4+ Test: -Add NaOH solution to a solution of the unknown. -Mix the solution well in a test tube. -Place a litmus paper in the mouth of the test tube and moistened it with DI water. -If litmus paper turns blue NH 3 is present. Therefore, NH 4 + must be present. K+ Crucible Test: -Place the unknown solid in a crucible and heat it until the fumes and smoke are no longer discharged. -If the unknown contains NH 4 + , it should be completely volatilized. -When the crucible is cooled off, dissolve any residue with 1-2 ml deionized
