Problem: You may need to reference (Pages 158 - 162) section 4.5 while completing this problem.Determine whether each of the following compounds is soluble or insoluble:a. AgIb. Cu3(PO4)2c. CoCO3d. K3PO4

FREE Expert Solution

a. AgI

• Halides (Cl, Br, and I) are soluble except when paired with Ag+, Pb2+, Cu+, Hg22+

AgI → insoluble


b. Cu3(PO4)2

Phosphates (PO43–) are insoluble except when with Group 1A ions (Li+, Na+, K+, etc.) and ammonium ion (NH4+)

Cu3(PO4)2 → insoluble
