What should I think about when writing a hypothesis to this experiment?

What should I think about when writing a hypothesis to this experiment? I am going to make 4 kinds of reactions, and therefore I think I need a more general hypothesis i.e applicable to all the reactions.

The purpose of the laboratory/experiment is to gain an understanding of how precipitates are formed by mixing salt solutions (aqueous form) and that to be able to see the connection between the different reactions and thus draw conclusions.

You will need to write hypothesis for each... View the full answer

  • thanks for answering! is it not possible to write a more general hypothesis eg.If ionic compounds in aqueous solutions are mixed, then precipitates may be produced. This is because the properties of the ionic compounds react differently in various mixes according to the solubility rules. Or is it incorrect?

  • It is correct since precipitation reactions occur when cations and anions in aqueous solution combine to form an insoluble ionic solid called a precipitate. i hope all your results are positive ( + precipitate)
