Aluminum hydroxide precipitate

4. Aluminum hydroxide, Al(OH)3, is a gelatinous, insoluble material (Ksp = 1.3 X 10 negative 33rd). If you add 1.65 x 10 negative 6th mol of AlCl3 to ten ml of water that has a pH of 9.5, will an aluminum hydroxide precipitate form? If one does form, approximately how many grams will form? Molar mass of Al(OH)3 = 78.00 g/mol.

Solution Summary

This solution determines whether a reaction will form aluminum hydroxide precipitate, and how many grams.
