Textbook Problem

For which salt in each of the following groups will the solubility depend on pH?

a. AgF, AgCl, AgBr

b. Pb(OH)2, PbCl2

c. Sr(NO3)2, Sr(NO2)2

d. Ni(N03)2, Ni(CN)2

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The salt that depends on the pH value is to be identified from the given list.

Concept introduction: The solubility of salt is affected by pH value. The decrease in the value of pH has the opposite effect that is based on the application of Le Chatlier’s principle. The anions of strong acid and their salt is independent of pH value whereas anions of weak acid is affected by pH value. If the pH value of basic salt is decreased, its solubility will increase.

Explanation

Explanation

To identify: The salt that depends on the pH value from AgF,AgCl and AgBr

The compound AgF will show the dependency on the pH value.

The anion Br,Cl
