A saturated solution of a certain metal(II) chloride has a chloride ion concentration of 0.032M. The Ksp for this compound can be determined to be is?

This is similar to another question I posted that gave the Ksp and I had to find the pH. I am not sure how to start this problem using the concentration.

  • Chemistry - ,

    ............MCl2 ==> M^2+ + 2Cl^-
    equil.......................0.032M
    If Cl is 0.032 then M must be 1/2 that or 0.016M
    Then Ksp = (M^2+)(Cl^-)^2
    Substitute the numbers and solve for Ksp. You should get 1.6E-5
