Textbook Problem

Calculate the molar solubility of Mg (OH)2, Ksp = 8.9 × 10–12.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The molar solubility of Mg(OH)2 has to be calculated.

Concept introduction:

  • Molar solubility is the number of moles of a substance that can be dissolved per liter of solution ahead of the solution becomes saturated.

    Mg(OH)2(s)Mg(aq)2++2OH(aq)-

  • It can be calculated from a substance's solubility product constant (Ksp) and stoichiometry.
Explanation

Mg(OH)2(s)Mg(aq)2++2OH(aq)-

Ksp=[Mg2+][OH]2=(s)(2s)2
