Acid-Base Equilibrium

A solution is prepared by mixing 46.8 mL of 0.16 M Pb(NO3)2 with 75.3 mL of 1.4 M KCl. Calculate the concentrations of Pb2+ and Cl- at equilibrium. Ksp for PbCl2(s) is 1.6 10-5.

-----------------------------------------------------
PbCl2(s) --> Pb2+(aq) + 2Cl-(aq) Ksp = 1.6 x 10-5

1 mol of Pb(NO3)2 will dissociate to produce 1 mol of Pb2+, therefore
(0.0468 L * 0.16 M) = 7.5 x ...

Solution Summary

This solution provides a breakdown of equations to find concentration of ions in a solution and determine equilibrium.
