Step 1

The molar concentration of the substance can be described as the ratio of the moles of the substance to the volume of the solution in the liters.

Step 2

The equation for the dissociation of potassium carbonate is shown below:

Step 3

In the above equation, one mole potassium carbonate is dissociated to form two moles of potassium ion and ... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose´0.015 mol K,CO3 2 mol K+ Molar concentration of Ktion = 1mol K,CO3 = 0.03 M Therefore, the molar concentration of potassium ion is 0.03 M. fullscreen
