If a solution contained Fe3+ ions at a concentration of 0.1 M, what pH would have to be reached to
precipitate 99% of the Fe3+ as Fe(OH)3?
Hint: Determine [Fe3+] after precipitation and use it and the Ksp to
determine [OH-]


Expert Answer

Step 1

The reaction of Fe(OH)3 to precipitate is given as,

Step 2

Use the relation of solubility product constant, Ksp of Fe(OH)3 is 4 × 10-38

Step 3

The pOH is calcu...
