Problem: The concentration of Ag+ in a solution saturated with Ag 2C2O4(s) is 2.2 X 10-4 M. Calculate Ksp for Ag2C2O4.

FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to calculate Ksp


Since the Ag2C2O4 is an ionic compound, it forms ions when dissociating in water. The dissociation of Ag2C2Oin water is as follows:


Ag2C2O4(s)   2 Ag+(aq) + C2O42- (aq)
