Problem: Enter the solubility-product expression for Al(OH)3(s).

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that Ksp is an equilibrium constant related to slightly soluble ionic compounds

The dissociation of slightly soluble Al(OH)3 in solution is as follows:

Al(OH)3(s)   Al3+(aq) + 3 OH(aq)

We can construct an ICE table for this dissociation

where x = molar solubility of the compound.

The Ksp expression is:


Remember that solids are ignored in the ICE table and Ksp expression.
