Problem 98P

Calculate the molar solubility of FeCO3. How many grams of FeCO3 are present in 15.0 L of a saturated FeCO3 solution?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 98P :

Step 1:

Given :

Volume of saturated FeCO3 solution = 15.0 L

Grams of  FeCO3 present in solution(Molar solubility) = ?

FeCO3 dissociates as :

FeCO3(s) → Fe2+ (aq) + CO32- (aq)

So, Ksp will be :

Ksp = [ ] [ ]

To solve this problem, we need the solubility product, i.e Ksp for FeCO3. Assuming that the solution is at ambient temperature (25 oC), the value of the Ksp as 3.13 10-11

Now, Let’s consider ‘x’ = [ ] and [ ]

Therefore, Ksp = x²

(3.13 10-11) = x²

x = = 5.594 10-6 M

Hence,  [ ] and [ ]  = 5.594 10-6 M . i.e Concentration of saturated solution of FeCO3 = 5.594 10-6 M.
