A colloid is formed by adding FeCl3


 A colloid is formed by adding FeCl3 in excess of hot water. What will happen if excess sodium chloride is added to this colloid?


FeCl3 when added into hot water, it forms hydrated ferric oxide, which is a positively charged sol due to absorption of Fe3+ ions. On adding NaCl the negatively charged chloride ions neutralize the positive charge of the solution and coagulation of the sol takes place.
