What is the concentration of the Mg2 ion in solution when [CO3-2] = 0.25M given that the
Ksp= 6.82 x 10-6 for the following reaction

MgCO3-------->Mg +. CO32-

Ksp = (Mg^2+)(CO3^2-)
Substitute 0.25M for CO3^2- and solve for Mg^2+

Am I using 6.82 x 10-6 to find Mg^2+.
dont think I understand

• chemistry -

You know Ksp(6.82E-6). You know Co3^2- (0.25M). You have only one unknown, Mg^2+. Solve for that.

• chemistry -

you have the formula Ksp= [Mg] [CO3] and you need to substitute in.25 for CO3... And plug the Ksp in with what they gave you in the problem... algebraic equation getting Mg by itself which involves multiplying both sides by the reciprocating fraction and having a divisor. You should be able to get your answer

• chemistry -

ok DrBob the answer i got was 2.7 x10-5 am i correct

• chemistry -

Yes Monique that is the answer.
