Write word equation for the following molecular equation:
FeSO4 + 2NaOH →Na2SO4 + Fe(OH)2 ↓
State why [↓] indication is seen after Fe(OH)2 and not after Na2SO4
Iron (II) Sulphate + Sodium hydroxide → Sodium sulphate + Iron (II) hydroxide ↓
The precipitate formed in a chemical equation is shown with an arrow pointing downwards [↓].
Hence, Fe(OH)2 is the precipitate formed but not Na2SO4.
