Determine [Zn2 ], [CN–], and [HCN] in a saturated solution of Zn(CN)2 with a fixed pH of 1.78. The Ksp for Zn(CN)2 is 3.0 × 10–16. The Ka for HCN is 6.2 × 10–10.

I know the following is what needs to be done, but im unsure of how to go about it.

1. Write the pertinent reactions. 2. Write the charge balance equation. 3. Write the mass balance equations. 4. Write the equilibrium constant expressions for each reaction. 5. Count the equations and unknowns. 6. Solve for all unknowns.
