Problem: The solubility of Silver Carbonate is 0.032 M at 20°C. Calculate the Ksp of Silver Carbonate.

FREE Expert Solution

We're being asked to calculate the Ksp of Silver Carbonate.


The formula of silver carbonate is Ag2CO3. We can construct an ICE table for the dissociation of Ag2CO3. Remember that solids are ignored in the ICE table and Ksp expression.

Ag2CO3(s) ⇌ 2 Ag+(aq) + CO32-(aq)
