(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The molar solubility of the given compound is to be calculated.

Concept introduction: Solubility is defined as the maximum amount of solute that can dissolve at a certain amount of solvent at certain temperature. The solubility product, Ksp is the equilibrium constant that is applied when salt partially dissolve in a solvent. The solubility product of dissociation of AxBy is calculated by the formula,

Ksp=[A]x[B]y

The number of moles of a given substance that can be dissolved in 1L of a given solution, before the solution is saturated, is known as molar solubility.

### Explanation of Solution

Explanation

To determine: The molar solubility of AgI in pure water.

The molar solubility of AgI in pure water is 1.224×10-8mol/L_ .

Given

The Ksp of AgI is 1.5×1016 .

The dissociation reaction of AgI is,

AgIAg++I

The solubility of Ag+ is assumed to be smol/L .

The solubility product of dissociation of AgI is calculated by the formula,

Ksp=[Ag+][I]

The solubility of AgI can be calculated from the concentration of its ions at equilibrium.

It is assumed that smol/L of solid is dissolved to reach the equilibrium
