No precipitate would form because Ksp>P d. No precipitate would form because P>Ksp e. No precipitate would form because P=Ksp

    Formation constant

    The formation constant for Cu(NH3)4(exponent 2 positive) is 2x10(exponent 12). What is the ratio of Cu(NH3)4(exponent 2 positive) to Cu(exponent 2 positive) in 0.1M NH3?

    Writing chemical formulas

    Determining the products when given the reactants.

    There are two beakers each with distilled water. One has trihydrogen borate + potassium hydroxide (H3BO3 + KOH) and the other has trihydrogen borate + sodium hydroxide (H3BO3 + NaOH). What are the products that are formed after the solutions are heated and placed in an ice water bath? Hint: There will be a precipitate.
