Problem: The molar solubility of Ag 2S is 1.26 × 10-16 M in pure water. Calculate the Ksp for Ag2S.

FREE Expert Solution

We have to determine the solubility produce (Ksp) of Ag2S from its molar solubility.

Solubility product (Ksp) is the equilibrium constant for a solid substance that dissolves sparingly to form a very dilute solution.

Substances with higher solubilities have higher Ksp values.

To calculate the Ksp of Ag2S from its molar solubility, we will start with the equation for the dissociation of Ag2S.
