A yellow yellow solution of salt yields a reddish brown precipitate with caustic soda solution. Thr precipitate does not dissolve in excess of alkali. The reddish brown precipitate on strong heating leaves behind the red powder, insoluble in water but soluble in dilute HCl. 1. Identify the metal of salt. 2. Write the equation of reaction involved, assuming the salt to be a sulphate salt.

Dear student 
The metal salt is not a sulphate. The metal salt is ferric chloride.
