A 50.0-mL sample of 0.00200 M AgNO3 is added to 50.0 mL of 0.0100 M NaIO3. What is the equilibrium concentration of Ag in solution? (Ksp for AgIO3 is 3.0 108 .)

Problem 53

A 50.0-mL sample of 0.00200 M is added to 50.0 mL of 0.0100 M . What is the equilibrium concentration of Ag in solution? (Ksp for is 3.0 x 10-8 .)

Step by step solution

Step 1 of 4

The first step is to determine whether solid forms. To do this, we need to calculate the concentration of and in the mixed solution and find ionic product (Q):

Let’s calculate the ionic product.

“Q” is larger than and a precipitate will form.
