1. Would the experimental values of Ksp, (see attachment for formatting); be affected if the samples titrated contained large amounts of solid borax? If so, would the experimental values be falsely high or falsely low? Explain

2. Does the equilibrium constant change as the temperature changes? If so, explain why the equilibrium constant changes.

1) The presence of solid borax results would have an effect on the values of Ksp,

∆H◦, ∆S and ∆G only if there is a change in temperature also. Otherwise , the ...

Solution Summary

Solution attaches a .doc file to explain whether experimental values of Ksp would be falsely high/low as well as why the equilibrium constant would or would not change during this titration.
