Step 1

Given cations are Co+2, Fe+2, Sr+2 and Ni+2. EDTA can form complexes with many metal cations. Kf can be considered as the formation constant for metal-EDTA complexes. If the metal complex has the...

Cation which first form complex -Ni2
Cation which second form complex -Co2
Cation which third form complex-Fe2
