The unknown salt you will be identifying is composed of one of the 6 anions and one of the 6 cations studied during previous weeks of lab. However, the list is not endless. An obvious physical property can be used to eliminate some salts. Another physical property can imply or eliminate possibilities as well. During this lab, what are two physical properties that can be used?
