Calculate the solubility at 25°C of Zn(OH)2 in pure water and in a 

0.0080M ZnSO4 solution. You'll find Ksp data in the ALEKS Data tab.

Round both of your answers to 2 significant digits.

ksp of zn(OH)2 =3.0×10−17

solubility in pure water:                                    gL  
solubility in 0.0080 M ZnSO4 solution:             gL  

Expert Answer

Step 1


Concentration of ZnSO4 = 0.0080M.

Ksp of Zn(OH)2 =3.0×10−17
