#### Solution Preview

The molar solubility product Ksp = [Ag+]^2 * [CrO4 ^2-] ----(1)
<br>
<br>for the reaction Ag2CrO4(s) ---&gt; 2Ag^+ + CrO4^2-
<br>
<br>and the molar solubility, or the molar concentration of silver chromate going in to the solution, is equal to [CrO4^2-] and is equal to [Ag+]/2
<br>
<br>Or in terms of the concentraion of the chromate ion,
<br>
<br>Ksp = {2[CrO4^2-]}^2 * [CrO4^2-] = 4 ...
