Calculating the solubility product constant of Pb3(AsO4)2

The following cell was found to have a potential of 0.416 V. Calculate the k for Pb3(ASO4)2.

Pb3(s)| Pb3(AsO)2(saturated) AsO4^3-(1.00x10^-3 M) || S.H.E.

Pb^2+ +2e- <---> Pb(s) E^o = -0.126 V

H3AsO4 + 2H+ + 2e- <---> H3AsO3 + H2O E^o = 0.559 V
