We’re being asked to calculate the molarity (M) of each of the individual ions in a 0.800 M (NH4)2S solution. Recall that:
• Dissociation of (NH4)2S: (NH4)2S(s) → 2 NH4+(aq) + S2-(aq)
(NH4)2S is a strong electrolyte. Determine the concentration of each of the individual ions in a 0.800 M (NH4)2S solution.
