# Write balanced equations for the dissolution reactions and the corresponding solubility product expressions for each of the following solids.a. AgC2H3O2b. Al(OH)3c. Ca3(PO4)2

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The balanced equations for the dissociation reactions and the corresponding solubility product expression for each of the given solids are to be stated.

Concept introduction: 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 as,

Ksp=[A]x[B]y

Explanation

Explanation

To determine: The balanced equations for the dissociation reactions and the corresponding solubility product expression for AgC2H3O2 .

The dissociation reaction of AgC2H3O2 is,

AgC2H3O2(s)Ag+(aq)+C2H3O2(aq)

The compound AgC2H3O2 will dissociate into Ag+ ion and C2H3O2 ion
