Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The common ion effect is to be explained.

Concept introduction: The common ion is defined as the ion present in water that is common to the ions present in the dissolved salt. This ion enters into the solution from two different sources.



To explain: The common ion effect.

According to the common ion effect, the increase in the concentration of any ion, in accordance to the Le Chatlier’s principle, leads to the combination of excess ions with the oppositely charged ions.

For example,

Solution of NaCl and KCl contains chloride ions that has the following relation,
