Problem 85P

Calculate the molar solubility of CaCO3.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 3

Here we have to calculate the molar solubility of CaCO3.

Ksp of CaCO3 is 4.8x10-9

CaCO3 dissociate to give ,

CaCO3 (s) Ca2+ (aq) + CO32- (aq)

let x = mol/L CaCO3 that dissolve : we get x mol/L Ca2+ and x mol/L CO32- ion.

Ksp = [Ca2+][CO32-]

4.8x10-9 = (x)(x)

4.8x10-9 =...
