An interactive animation illustrating an experiment to investigate which metal ions cause water hardness. Click the highlighted areas to add the ions to water with a little soap added. Hard water does not easily lather and forms scum on the surface.

This resource is from the unit Hard Water which is part of Absorb Chemistry.
