🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Anton's class at PBCC.

Solution: A saturated solution of lead(II) iodide, PbI 2 has an iodide concentration of 3.0 x 10 -3 mol/L.a) What is the molar solubility of PbI2?   b) Determine the solubility constant, Ksp, for lead (II) iodide.   c) Does the molar solubility of lead (II) iodide increase, decrease, or remain unchanged with the addition of potassium iodide to the solution? Explain.
