Dissolution of AgCl(s): AgCl(s) ⇌ Ag+(aq) + Cl–(aq)
Ag+(aq) = 77.1 kJ/mol
Cl–(aq) = –131.2 kJ/mol
AgCl(s) = –109.8 kJ/mol
Consider the following Gibbs energies at 25 °C.
Substance ΔG°f (kJ•mol-1)
a) Calculate ΔG°rxn for the dissolution of AgCl(s).
b) Calculate the solubility-product constant of AgCl.
K = _____
