Problem: In which of the following aqueous solutions would you expect CuBr to have the highest solubility?A) Pure waterB) 0.10 M AgNO3C) 0.20 M NaBrD) 0.15 M KBrE) 0.10 M LiBr

FREE Expert Solution

We're being asked to determine in which solution CuBr would be most soluble.


Since the compounds are ionic compounds, they form ions when dissociating in water. The dissociation of each are as follows:


For Pure water, H2O:

H2O → H+ + OH-


For 0.10 M AgNO3:

The nitrate ion, NO3, has a charge of –1. Ag has a charge of +1:

AgNO3  Ag+(aq) + NO3(aq)
