# Calculate the molar solubility of Cd(OH)2, Ksp = 5.9 × 10–11.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The molar solubility of Cd(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.

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

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

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

Ksp=[Cd2+][OH]2=(s)(2s)2
