    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, ...
