Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, December 9, 2008 at 2:20pm.

I did a project for lab chemistry where my aim was to see which substance, from a selection of 4 chlorides, recrystallises from a solution to form the most crystals. The 4 chlorides were KCl, NaCl, MgCl2 and CaCl2.
KCl and NaCl didn't form any crystals, they formed a saturated solution whereas MgCl2 and CaCl2 formed crystals. It seems as if the charges on the positve ion of the chloride are important here; but why? How do I explain my results? Conclusion??
