Problem: Find the molar solubility of SrCO3 (Ksp = 5.4 x 10-4) in (a) pure water and (b) 0.13 M Sr(NO3)2

FREE Expert Solution

The dissociation of SrCO3 in water is as follows:

SrCO3(s) ⇌ Sr2+(aq) + CO32(aq)


(a) Pure water

We can construct an ICE table for the dissociation of SrCO3

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

Ksp=productsreactants=[Sr2+][CO32-]
