FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to write the balanced equation for the dissolution reaction and the corresponding solubility product expression for BaF2.


The balanced equation for the dissolution reaction is: 

BaF2(s) → Ba2+(aq) + 2F-(aq)


For the solubility product expression recall:

Ksp = productsreactants


Solids are ignored so we don't include the reactant at all.
