The Ksp values for three salts are given:
AgCl = 1.0e-10
Ag2CO3 = 6.3e-10
Ag3PO4 = 2.0e-21
Determine the order of solubility for these three salts.
My answer is AgCl > Ag2CO3 > Ag3PO4.
Would you agree? Thank you.
Is that most to least soluble or least to most soluble?
most to least soluble. AgCl is more soluble than Ag2CO3 which is more soluble than Ag3PO4.
Ag2CO3 is the most soluble; Aag3PO4 is the least.
You must go through the Ksp and calculate the solubility of each. You can NOT look at the Ksp values and tell from that.
