A solution of PbI2 has [Pb2+] = 4.5 x 10-5 and [I-] = 6.5 x 10-4. PbI2 has Ksp = 8.7 x 10-9. Write down the reaction that is taking place. Calculate Q. Is Q larger or smaller than the Ksp? Is the solution unsaturated, saturated, or supersaturated? Will a precipitate form in this solution?
Qsp = (Pb^2+)(I^-)^2
From Qsp you get all of the answers to the other questions.
