EDTA is used as a complexing agent in chemical analysis. Solutions of EDTA, usually containing the disodium salt Na2H2EDTA, are also used to treat heavy metal poisoning. The equilibrium constant for the following reaction is 6.7 × 1021:

Chapter 20, Problem 78AE, EDTA is used as a complexing agent in chemical analysis. Solutions of EDTA, usually containing the

Calculate [Pb2+] at equilibrium in a solution originally 0.0050 M in Pb2+, 0.075 M in H2EDTA2−, and buffered at pH = 7.00.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The equilibrium constant of a reaction, pH value of buffer solution, concentration of solution in Pb2+ and concentration of solution in H2EDTA2 is given. The concentration of Pb2+ at equilibrium is to be calculated.

Concept introduction: At equilibrium, the equilibrium constant expression is expressed by the formula,

K=ConcentrationofproductsConcentrationofreactants

To determine: The concentration of Pb2+ at equilibrium for the given reaction.

Explanation

Explanation

The [H+] is 1×107M_ .

Given

The pH value is 6.00 .

Formula

The concentration of H+ is calculated using the formula,

pH=log10[H+]

Substitute the value of pH in the above equation.

pH=log10[H+]7.00=log10[H+][H+]=1×107M_

The concentration of Pb2+ at equilibrium for the given reaction is 8.6×105M_ .

Given

The value of K is 6.7×1021 .

Concentration of solution in Pb2+ is 0.0050M .

Concentration of solution in H2EDTA2 is 0.075M .

The given reaction is,

Pb2+(s)+H2EDTA2(aq)PbEDTA2(aq)+2H+(aq)

The ICE table for the stated reaction is formed.

Pb2+(aq)+H2EDTA2(aq)PbEDTA(aq)+2H+(aq)Initial(M):         0.00500.07000Change(M)      xx+x+2xEquilibrium(M):0
