When dissolved in water, K2CO3 dissociates accordingly: K2CO3 → 2 K+ + CO32–
Assuming complete dissociation (i.e. K2CO3 fully dissociates into its ions), the concentration of K+ ([K+]) in the solution is given by:
What is the concentration of K+ ions in a 0.045 M K 2CO3 solution assuming complete dissociation?
