Problem: The Ksp of PbBr2 is 6.60 x 10-6What is the molar solubility(M) of PbBr2 in 0.500M KBr solution?

FREE Expert Solution

Ksp →  equilibrium constant related to slightly soluble ionic compounds


PbBr2 dissociates in solution


PbBr2(s)   Pb2+(aq) + 2 Br(aq)


KBr dissociates completely in solution: KBr → K+ Br-

  • Br- → common ion
