  1. Zn(OH)2 ==> Zn^2+ + 2OH^-
    Ksp = 4.0E-17 = (Zn^+)(OH^-)^2
    pH = 5.0; use
    pH + pOH = pKw = 14 to solve for pOH, then -log(OH^-) to solve for (OH^-). Substitute OH into Ksp expression and solve for Zn^2+. That is the solubility of Zn(OH)2.

  2. I followed your direction and I calculated the solubility to be 40. Am I correct?
