Problem

Silver sulfate (Ag2SO4) is an ionic solid that is only slightly soluble in water. When it is added to water, the reaction Ag2SO4(s) ⇌ 2 Ag+(aq) + SO42–(aq) takes place.

A large amount of Ag2SO4(s) is placed in water at 25°C. Some of it dissolves and the solution at equilibrium contains 0.029 M Ag+(aq). What is the equilibrium constant for the reaction

Ag2SO4(s) ⇌ 2 Ag+(aq) + SO42–(aq)?

A) 1.8 x 10–7

B) 6.1 x 10–6

C) 1.2 x 10–5

D) 2.4 x 10–5

E) 8.4 x 10–4
