Chemistry: Names and Colors of Common Salts



These are just a few names of compounds, what color they are, their special characteristics (if any), etc.

You’ll find this information useful in Acids, Bases, and Salts; Analytical Chemistry; and in the differentiate between two salt/acids/compounds questions.

Hope this helps you out! 🙂 All you have to do is keep this in mind and apply it wherever needed! (Helps a lot in application-based questions!)

      And additionally, you may purchase the Together With guidebook for English II which will have a point wise summary of all chapters/poems/acts as well as short solved questions and practice questions. I recommend using Together With for English II only for quick revision. Otherwise, the books mentioned above are quite thorough and will help a lot!

      I really have no idea about this book. Haven’t heard about it, but one extra reference book surely can’t hurt! 🙂 But do try to get the Evergreen Workbook I mentioned above… I know from experience that it helps a lot in writing answers that are up to the mark.

      Thank you for pointing that out! You are absolutely correct, and I’ll add ammonium dichromate as an exception. 🙂
      Unfortunately, my knowledge is limited to the extent of what I have been taught, and mostly the notes posted here are a direct result of that.
