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
