FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to obtain the expression for the solubility product constant for [Hg2Br2].


The balanced dissociation reaction in aqueous solution is:


Hg2Br2(s) Hg22+(aq) + 2 Br-(aq)


The Ksp expression is the product of ion concentrations. It is written the same way as the equilibrium constant.


K = [Products][Reactants]
