The question is;
About Fe+2 concentration will Fe(OH)2 precipitate from a buffer solution that has a PH = 9.29? The Ksp of Fe(OH)2 is 4.87x10^-17

So here is what I did,
Ksp = (x) (2x)^2 = 4x^3
4.87x10^-17 = 4x^3
x = 2.30x10^-6

I don't know what do I have to do
after this.
Plz help me!

    You had the right idea but where is the pH 9.29 part? And there must be a concn Fe^+2 in there somewhere.

    Remember talking about Qsp?
    Convert pH = 9.29 to OH^-, then multiply
    Qsp = (Fe^+2)(OH^-)^2
    Now compare Qsp with Ksp and you will know if a ppt occurs. Again, you must have Fe^+2 concn in the problem?
