# To measure the amount of nickel in some industrial waste fluid, an analytical chemist adds 0.1600 M sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution to a 21.0 g sample ofthe fluid and collects the solid nickel(II) hydroxide (Ni(OH),) product. When no more Ni(OH), is produced, he filters, washes and weighs it, and finds that290has been produced.mgThe balanced chemical equation for the reaction is::2+Ni(OH)2(s) + 2 Na (ag)Ni (aq) + 2NaOH(aq) -precipitationWhat kind of reaction is this?acid-baseredoxIf you said this was a precipitation reaction, enter the chemical formula of theprecipitate.Ifsaid this was an acid-base reaction, enter the chemical formula of theyoureactant that is acting as the base.If you said this was a redox reaction, enter the chemical symbol of the elementthat is oxidized.Calculate the mass percent of Ni in the sample.
