EDEXCEL IGCSE CHEMISTRY: DOUBLE SCIENCE 复习笔记：2.6.1 Solubility Rules
- Ionic compounds are generally soluble in water compared to covalent substances, but there are exceptions
- A knowledge of the solubility of ionic compounds helps us to determine the most appropriate method for the preparation of salts
- The solubility of common ionic compounds is shown below:
Solubility of Ionic Compounds Table
- Calcium hydroxide is slightly soluble in water
Calcium hydroxide solution is more commonly know as limewater and is used to test for carbon dioxide.
