The Ksp for Fe(OH)2 is 1.8 x 10-11. Will a precipitate form if an 0.4M solution of FeCl2, has its pH raised to 8.3?

Response:

First, we write out the relevant chemical equation.

Fe(OH)2 ------> Fe2+ + 2 OH-

Second, we write the solubility product expression.

Ksp = [OH-]^2[Fe2+]

Third, since the concentration of FeCl2 is 0.4 M, then we also know that the concentration of Fe2+ is 0.4 M. Therefore, we can use this information to solve for the [OH-] in the Ksp expression.

Fourth, we write out the Ksp expression with what we know.

1.8x10^-11 = (x^2)(0.4), where x is [OH-]

Fifth, we solve for x.

x = 6.7x10^-6 M

Therefore, if the [OH-] > 6.7x10^-6 M, ...

Determining net ionic equation of a reaction

HINT: Aqueous ionic compounds exist as ions in solution. Start by writing the reactants as individual aqueous ions. Then use the solubility rules (https://sites.google.com/site/chempendix/solubility-chart) to identify any precipitates. Be sure to include phases and charges as necessary in your answer!

Start by writing the reactants as individual aqueous ions.

Ag^+ (aq)+NO^- 3(aq)+Ba^2+(aq)+OH^-(aq)
^ This three is a sub 3.

It is acceptable to ignore coefficients for now, then balance at the very end. Next, check the solubilities (https://sites.google.com/site/chempendix/solubility-chart) of silver hydroxide and barium nitrate. Soluble products should be written as individual aqueous ions. Insoluble products should be written as solid compounds. Finally, cancel out species that appear on both sides of the equation.
