Posted by on .

Solid Na2SO4 is added to a solution which is 0.014 M in Pb(NO3)2 and 0.041 M in AgNO3. Assume the volume remains constant. Ksp = 2.0 10-8 for PbSO4 and Ksp = 1.2 10-5 for Ag2SO4.
(a) Which compound precipitates first?
1 PbSO4
(b) What is the concentration of the first ion precipitated when the second ion starts to precipitate?


I NEED HELP WITH PART B THANK YOU!

  • chemistry - ,

    Divide Ksp of one by the other.
    [KspPbSO4/KspAg2SO4]=[(Pb^+2)(SO4^=)/(Ag^+)^2(SO4^=)].
    Note (SO4^=) cancels and you are left with
    2*10^-8/1.2*10^-5 = (Pb^+2)(Ag^+)^2
    Plug in (Ag^+)^2 and solve for (Pb^+2), Check my thinking.
