Step 1

The term solubility product constant can be defined as the equilibrium constant for the equilibrium present between a solid and its respective ions in the solution. The value of solubility product constant is used to indicate the degree up to which a given compound can dissociate in water.

Step 2

Let ‘s’ be the solubility of the ions present in Ag2CrO4 . Therefore, in water, its ions are dissociated as follows: help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose2Ag*(aq)+CrO?
