What concentration of SO32- is in equilibrium with Ag2SO3(s) and 9.60 * 10-3 M Ag ?

Question:

What concentration of SO32- is in equilibrium with Ag2SO3(s) and 9.60 * 10-3 M Ag ?

Molarity

Molar concentration is a measure of the concentration of a chemical species in terms of the amount of substance per unit volume of solution. The higher the molarity, the higher the concentration of the solute in the solution.

Answer and Explanation:

{eq}Ksp {/eq} of {eq}Ag_2SO_3 = 1.50 \times 10^{-14} {/eq}

{eq}Ag_2SO_3 \rightleftharpoons 2Ag^+ + SO_3^{2-} {/eq}

{eq}Ksp = [Ag^+]^2 \times [SO^{2-}_3] {/eq}

{eq}1.50 \times 10^{-14} = (9.60 \times 10^{-3})^2 [SO^{2-}_3] {/eq}

{eq}[SO^{2-}_3] =1.63 \times 10^{-10} M {/eq}

={eq}1.63 \times 10^{-10} M {/eq}
