Solubility Product Constant

A special case of equilibrium involving dissolving.

Solid Positive Ion + Negative Ion

Mg(NO3)2 Mg2+ + 2NO3-

Keq = [Mg2+ ] [NO3-]2

Because the constant is a product of solubility, we call it the solubility product constant Ksp

- Given Ksp, find solubility
- Given solubility, find Ksp
- Find solubility in a solution with a common ion
- Predicting precipitation

BaF2(S) Ba+2(aq) + 2F-(aq)

Write out the equilibrium law expression…

Ksp = [Ba+2][F-]2

- All nitrates are soluble
- All compounds of the alkali metals are soluble (Li, Na, K, etc.)
- All compounds of the ammonium (NH4+) are soluble

What is the solubility of Silver Bromide (Ksp = 5.2 x 10-13)

AgBr Ag+ + Br-

Ksp = [Ag+][Br-] = 5.2 x 10-13

Let x = the solubility

(x)(x) = 5.2 x 10-13

X = 7.2 x 10-7

X2 = 5.2 x 10-13

What is the solubility of PbI2 (Ksp = 7.1 x 10-9)

PbI2(s) Pb+2 + 2I-

Ksp = [Pb+2][I-]2 = 7.1 x 10-9

Let x = the solubility

(x)(2x)2 = 7.1 x 10-9

(x)(4x2) = 7.1 x 10-9

4x3 = 7.1 x 10-9

X = 1.2x10-3M

What is the Ksp of Boric Acid, given its solubility of 2.15 x 10-3 Moles/liter?

H3BO3 3H+ + BO3-3

Ksp = [H+]3[BO3-3]

[3(2.15x10-3)]3 [2.15x10-3]

= 5.77 x 10-10

What is the solubility of lead iodide (PbI2) in a .15M solution of KI ?

PbI2 Pb+2 + 2I-

KI K+ + I-

Ksp = [Pb+2][I-]2 = 7.1 x 10-9

What is the solubility of lead iodide (PbI2) in a .15M solution of KI ?

PbI2 Pb+2 + 2I-

KI K+ + I-

Ksp = [Pb+2][I-]2

Let x = solubility

Then: [Pb+] = x [I-] = .15+2x

Let x = solubility of PbI2 in the solution

Then, [Pb+2] = x [I-] = .15 + 2x

Ksp = (x)(.15+2x)2 = 7.1 x 10-9

Ksp = (x)(.15+2x)2 = 7.1 • 10-9

(x)(4x2 + .6x +.152) = 7.1 • 10-9

4x3 + .6x2 + .152x = 7.1 • 10-9

4x3 + .6x2 + .0225 – 7.1 • 10-9 = 0

Ksp = (x)(.15+2x)2 = 7.1 x 10-9

Assume .15>>2x

then, .15+2x .15

Bill Gates was the 2nd Richest Man in the World for 2012.

Woopie! It’s my lucky day!

He is worth about…

$73 Billion Dollars

Now, suppose one day he finds a penny.

$73,000,000,000.01

$73 Billion

Ksp = (x)(.15+2x)2 = 7.1 x 10-9

Assume .15>>2x

then, .15+2x .15

Ksp = (x)(.15)2 = 7.1 x 10-9

X = 3.16 x 10-7 moles/liters

A student mixes 0.010 mole Ca(NO3)2 in 2 liters of 0.10M Na2CO3solution. Will a precipitate form?

Step 1: Write out the dissolving equations

Ca(NO3)2 (s) Ca2+(aq)+ 2NO3- (aq)

Na2CO3 (s) 2Na+(aq) + CO32- (aq)

Step 2: Determine the most likely precipitate & write out it’s equation.

Ca(NO3)2 Ca2+ + 2NO3-

Na2CO3 2Na+ + CO32-

- All nitrates are soluble
- All compounds of the alkali metals are soluble (Li, Na, K, etc.)
- All compounds of the ammonium (NH4+) are soluble

Step 2: Determine the most likely precipitate & write out it’s equation.

Ca(NO3)2 Ca2+ + 2NO3-

Na2CO3 2Na+ + CO32-

CaCO3 Ca2+ + CO32-

Ksp = [Ca2+ ][CO32-] = 4.7 x 10-9

Step 3: Determine the molar concentrations & calculate the reaction quotient (Q).

[Ca2+] = .01 mole/2 liters = .005M

[CO32-] = 0.10 M (given)

The product of the Ksp equation using the ion concentration before any reaction interaction.

If Q > Ksp Then a precipitate will form.

[Ca2+] = .01mole/2 liters = .005M

[CO32-] = 0.10 M (given)

Q = (.005)(0.10) = .0005

Q > Ksp a precipitate will form.

.015 moles of AgNO3 is mixed with 5 liters of .02M NaCl solution. What is the most likely precipitate and will it form?

.015 moles of AgNO3 is mixed with 5 liters of .02M NaCl solution. What is the most likelyprecipitate and will it form?

AgNO3 Ag+ + NO3-

NaCl Na+ + Cl-

AgCl Ag+ + Cl-

Q = [Ag+][Cl-]

Q = (.015/5)(.02) = .00006

Look up the Ksp (1.0 x 10-10)

Q > Ksp So a precipitate will form!
