Solutions of sodium thiosulfate are used to dissolve unexposed AgBr (Ksp = 5.0 10-13) in the developing process for black-and-white film. What mass of AgBr can dissolve in 1.40 L of 0.425 M Na2S2O3? Ag+ reacts with S2O32- to form a complex ion.
Ag+(aq) + 2 S2O32-(aq)--> Ag(S2O3)23-(aq) K = 2.9 10^13
