Problem 80P

Determine the concentration of the cation and anion in each aqueous solution. (Assume complete dissociation of each compound.)

(a) 0.20 M SrSO4

(b) 0.15 M Cr2(SO4)2

(c) 0.12 M SrI2

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 80P :

Step 1:

Here, we have to determine the concentration of the cation and anion in each aqueous solution.

(a) 0.20 M SrSO4 :

The dissociation of SrSO4 into ions takes place as shown below :

SrSO4 → Sr2+ + SO42-

As we see, The ratio of cation and anion is 1 : 1, i.e 1 mole of SrSO4 dissociates into 1 mole of cation(Sr2+) and 1 mole of anion(SO42-).

Therefore, concentration of cation(Sr2+) = 0.20 M.

and concentration of anion(SO42-) = 0.20 M.

(b) 0.15 M Cr2(SO4)3 :

The dissociation of SrSO4 into ions takes place as shown below :

Cr2(SO4)3 → 2Cr3+ + 3SO42-

As we see, The ratio of cation and anion is 2 : 3, i.e 1 mole of Cr2(SO4)3 dissociates into 2 moles of cation(Cr3+) and 3 moles of anion(SO42-).

Therefore, concentration of cation(2 Cr3+) = 20.15 M = 0.30 M

and concentration of anion(3 SO42-) = 30.15 M = 0.45 M

(c) 0.12 M SrI2 :

The dissociation of SrI2 into ions takes place as shown below :

SrI2 → Sr2+ + 2I-

As we see, The ratio of cation and anion is 1 : 2, i.e 1 mole of SrI2 dissociates into 1 mole of cation(Sr2+) and 1 mole of anion(2I-).

Therefore, concentration of cation(Sr2+) = 0.12 M

and concentration of anion(2 I-) = 20.12 M = 0.24 M
