Question

The slightly soluble salt fluorapatite, Ca­5(PO4)3F, has a Ksp= 1 x 10-31. It dissociates in water according to the following equation:

Ca­5(PO4)3F(s)   ó 5Ca2+    +   3PO43-     +    F-

1. Write the Kspequation for this process:  Ksp= ___________________________

1. Calculate the equilibrium concentrations of Ca2+, PO43- , and  F-.

1. [Ca2+] = _____________________
2. [PO43- ] = ______________________
3. [F-] = ______________________
