earth (group 2A) metals and ammonium ions are colorless since the electrons of these ions do not
absorb light in the visible region of the spectrum

determination of the endpoint is not visual..

because. insoluble hydroxides and basic oxides form thus resulting to a negative error at the

hydronium ions) unlike the rest.



Solution: Barium and Sodium does not have the same value of charge therefore,

they can be distinguished through flame test.
