Which of the following is a positively charged sol ?


1 Answer

Answer : $Metal\;hydroxides\;like\;Fe(OH)_{3}\;,Al(OH)_{3}\;,etc$
Explanation :
In a colloidal solution , the ion which is common with their own lattice ions is preferentially adsorbed . If AgI solution is added to an aqueous solution of potassium Iodide , the precipitated silver iodide will adsorb negative ions (common ions) from the dispersion medium to form a negatively charged sol .
$AgI : I^{-}\;$ and if KI is added to $\;AgNO_{3}\;$ the sol will be positively charged sol & $\;Fe(OH)_{3}\; $ & other metal hydroxides are positively charged sol .
