Problem

Mercury(I) is a diatomic ion (Hg 22+, also called mercurous iron with a charge of +2. Mercury(I) iodate dissociates as follows:

Hg2(IO3)2 (s) → Hg 22+ + 2IO3-                K sp = [Hg22+][IO3]2

a. Find the concentration of Hg 22+ and IO3- in a saturated solution of Hg 2(IO3)2 (s) if there are no other significant species such as the ion pair Hg22+ • IO3-.





b. Find [Hg22+] in a 0.010M solution of KIO 3 saturated with Hg 2(IO3)2 (s).
