We are asked to indicate which of the three cations Ni2+, Cu2+, and Ag+, is Cations A, B, and C from the diagram.
We will use the Cation Separation Flow Chart to separate the three cations.
Three cations, Ni2+, Cu2+, and Ag+, are separated using two different precipitating agents.
Using these agents, indicate which of the cations is A, which is B, and which is C.
