## Use Ksp values to decide which compound in each of the following pairs is more soluble. (Appendix J.)(a) AgBr or AgSCN(b) SrCO3 or SrSO4(c) AgI or PbI2(d) MgF2 or CaF2

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Using Ksp value, the salt will be more soluble in each pair has to be decided.

Concept introduction:

The solubility of a salt is defined as the maximum amount of salt that can be dissolved in definite amount of solvent. It is expressed in moles per liter or grams per liter. Solubility in terms of moles per liter is called molar solubility and is defined as the number of moles of solute (salt) dissolved in per liter of solution.

Solubility product constant Ksp is an equilibrium constant and is defined as the product of the equilibrium concentration of the ions of the salt raised to the power of their coefficients in the balanced chemical equation.

The expression for Ksp of a salt is given as,

AxBy(s)xAy+(aq)+yBx(aq)Ksp=[Ay+]x[Bx]y

### Explanation of Solution

Refer to the Appendix J in the textbook for the value of Ksp.

Solubility product constant Ksp for AgSCN is 1.0×1012 and for AgBr is 5.4×1013

The expression for Ksp of a salt is given as,

AxBy(s)xAy+(aq)+yBx(aq)Ksp=[Ay+]x[Bx]y
