The solubility-product constants, Ksp, at 25 °C for two compounds [iron(II) carbonate, FeCO3, and cadmium(II) carbonate, CdCO3] are given by the table. A solution of Na2CO3 is added dropwise to a solution that contains 1.23x10^-2 M Fe^2+ and 1.53x10^-2 M Cd^2+. What concentration of CO3^2- is needed to initiate precipitation? Neglect any volume changes during the addition Express your answer with the appropriate units. In the solution from Part A, what will the concentration of CO3^2- be at the moment before Fe^2+ begins to precipitate? Express your answer with the appropriate units. What will the concentration of Cd^2+ at the moment before Fe^2+ begins to precipitate? Express your answer with the appropriate units.
