Alkali metals are characterised by:
1. Good conductors of heat and electricity.
2. High melting points.
3. Low oxidation potentials.
4. High ionisation potentials.
Excess of dilute sodium hydroxide solution is gradually added with shaking to an aqueous solution of zinc sulphate. What would you observe?
1. A light blue precipitate is first formed which finally dissolves to give a deep blue solution
2. A white precipitate appears which dissolves to give a colourless solution.
3. A white precipitation is formed which does not dissolve
4. No change takes place and the solution remains clear
