Salt (Sodium Chloride)

Salt (NaCl) is made from sodium and chloride ions. Salt gives flavor to many meals. This compound is also in the form of a crystal lattice since it is made from two ions joining together.

Is NaCl H2O a mixture or compound?

When salt (NaCl) is add into water (H2O), the individual ions of the salt (NaCl) become disassociated and uniformly spread throughout the water (H2O) forming a saltwater solution (Na[+ion] + Cl[-ion] + H2O).

All matter can be divided into two major groups: Pure substances and Mixtures. To classify matter into one of the two major groups you would first need to know if "it can be separated by a physical process". If it can be, then it is a mixture. If it can not be, then it is a pure substance. Both major groups then can be subdivide.

Mixtures can be either homogeneous or heterogeneous. If a mixture is "uniform throughout" then it is homogeneous, if not it is heterogeneous.

Pure substances can be either compounds or elements. If a pure substance "can be decomposed by a chemical process" it is a compound, if not it is an element.

You can physically raise the temperature of the saltwater (Na[+ion] + Cl[-ion] + H2O) and evaporate the water (H2O) changing its physical state. The individual ions (Na[+ion] and Cl[-ion]) would remain and being as their bonds are no longer disrupted by the water (H2O) would form the compound salt (NaCl).

What characteristics make NaCl a salt?

When an ionic compound dissolves in water, it increases the water's ability to conduct electricity. This is a characteristic of all salts. its in apex

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Because sodium chloride is the product of a neutralization reaction: a reaction between an acid and a base. Also is an ionic compound as many other salts.

How do you separate sand and sodium chloride?

- Add water and stir.

- Sodium chloride is dissolved.

- filter this material.

- Sand remain on the filter and sodium chloride in solution; crystallized NaCl can be obtained by the evaporation of water from the solution.

How do you separate a mixture of sulfur sodium chloride and sand?

Well, first you place the mixture in water and then the sodium chloride will start to dissolve, but the sand and sulfur will not. Next, you drain the water and place the sand/sulfur mix into cold carbon disulfide, which dissolves sulfur. You're left with plain sand.

Finally, you do your chemistry homework yourself.

What happens when you mix NaCl and AgNO3?

When sodium chloride and silver nitrate are mixed, a metathesis reaction takes place. The silver ion becomes bonded to the chloride ion. Since silver chloride is insoluble, this substance precipitates out of solution.

Does sodium chloride conduct electricity?

Solid sodium chloride does not conduct electricity.

Molten sodium chloride or sodium chloride dissolved in water does.

Is salt a compound?

Yes. If the question is about table salt, that's sodium chloride (NaCl), which is a chemical compound composed of one atom of sodium bonded to one atom of chlorine. Note that the term salt can be used as a general one. In chemistry, the result of any acid-base reaction is a salt and water. We know that hydrochloric acid (HCl) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) combine to produce sodium chloride (NaCl, or table salt) and water.

How many molecules are in NaCl?

Sodium chloride (NaCl) is an ionic substance. Therefore, there are no simple, discreet molecules of sodium chloride (or of other ionic solids for that matter). A sample of NaCl is instead made up of a lattice held together by strong ionic bonds. The formula NaCl is merely the simplest stochiometric ratio for the ionic crystal, which contains one Na atom for every Cl atom.

How can you tell the difference between salt or sugar without tast?

There are two ways to tell the difference between salt and sugar without tasting either one of them. One way is to place them separately in separate pans, and cook them. Sugar has a higher boiling point than does salt. When heated sugar will melt into a brown syrupy sustains Salt will not melt. Another way is to pour them on a slug. Salt melts the skin of the slug, but sugar does not.

What is the chemical name for table salt?

The chemical name for table salt is sodium chloride. It is written NaCl. Na+1=sodium, and Cl-1=chloride so the chemical name is sodium chloride. Sodium is Na, which is a explosive metal, and Cl is a poisonous gas. But when combined, it makes sodium chloride, or salt, which is an ionic compound.

Why NaCl is electrolyte?

All compounds which are can conduct electricity can be used as electrolytes. Since NaCl is an ionic compound and all ionic compounds in aqueous form or molten form can conduct electricity, it can be used as an electrolyte.
The correct formula is NaCL (with the lowercase letter L, not the number 1) and it is an electrolyte.

Why does sodium chloride crystals and sugar dissolve readily in water but not in oil?

Sodium chloride crystals dissolve in water easier that oil because the strong electrostatic attraction between the sodium and chloride ions. This mean that there are little energy change in water.

What happens when sulphuric acid reacts with sodium chloride?

If sodium chlorde is aqueous (in solution) and the sulphuric cid is dilute , there will hardly be any reaction. But if the sodium chloride is in solid form and the slphuric acid is concentrated, then a reaction takes place. The products are hydrogen chloride gas and sodium hydrogen sulphate. The hydrogen chloride gas is soluble in water, forming hdrochloric acid. The sodium hydrogen sulphate is an acidic salt and also known as Glauber's Salt.

Hope this helps.
