Determination of the solubility product of PbI2. From the experimental data we obtain [I] directly. To obtain Ksp for PbI2, we must calculate [Pb2+] in each equilibrium system. This is most easily done by constructing an equilibrium table. We first find the initial amount of I and Pb2+ ion in each system from the way the mixture were made up. Knowing I and the formula of lead iodide allows us to calculate [Pb2+], Ksp then follows directly.
PbI2 gives Pb2+(aq) + 2I (aq)
Ksp = [Pb2+] [I]^2

[I] in moles/Liter at equilibrium?
____
(Calculate for each of the five solutions

I'm sorry. I have looked at this and just can't figure out where we are going. I can't decipher the data.
