Why calcium salts do not react wih ammonium hydroxide

Asked by lovemaan5500 | 4th Dec, 2017, 07:10: AM

Expert Answer:

Ammonium hydroxide is a weak base that means on ionisation it can form low concentration of [OH-] ions.
Because of the concentration of OH- ions from the ionisation of NH4OH is low that it cannot react with calcium salts to precipitate the hydroxide of calcium.
