In most such schemes, including this one, a sequence of precipitating agents is used to separate the original mixture into smaller groups, each of which may contain more than one constituent. Each of the smaller groups is then examined further. The elements that you will be focusing on are eight of the twelve metallic constituents of the third long row of the periodic table: K, Ca, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, and Zn. You will first encounter them as 0.05 M aqueous solutions of nitrate salts. During the course of the experiment some of these elements may change their oxidation states one or more times. The scheme you will be us...
