a. Light blue-Blueish-green
c. Deep purple- silver
d. Transition metals.
e. Do not determine color. Usually contribute no color, or white. Transition metals determine contribution color
A hydrated salt or a salt that is paired with a water molecule is hydrated, is usually crystal in structure. When dehydrated, it is power dry and anhydrous salt. Cations from the transition metals are commonly hydrated.
