2 15.6 Solubility Equilibria Solubility of various compounds plays important roles.Sugar and table salt’s ability to dissolve in water help us to flavor food.Calcium sulfate is less soluble in hot water than cold water, which allows us to coat tubes in boilers.The low solubility of barium sulfate allows a safe way to X-ray the gastrointestinal tract.
3 Aqueous EquilibriaAssume that when an ionic solid dissolves, that it dissociates completely.CaF2(s) → Ca2+ (aq) + 2F- (aq)There is a possibility for the ions to collide and re-form the solid phase.Ca2+ (aq) + 2F- (aq)→ CaF2(s)Finally, equilibrium is reached, and no more solid will dissolve (saturated).CaF2(s) ↔ Ca2+ (aq) + 2F- (aq)
4 Solubility Product Constant Remember that solids are left out of equilibrium expressionsKsp=[Ca2+][F-]2Ksp is the solubility product constant (sometimes referred to as just the “solubility product”).*Notice that the amount of solid present nor the size of particles effect the equilibrium.
6 Solubility vs. Solubility Product Solubility is an equilibrium position.Solubility product is an equilibrium constant and has ONE value for a particular solid at a particular temperature.
7 Calculating Ksp from Solubility Calculate Ksp for bismuth sulfide (Bi2S3), which has a solubility of 1.0 x mol/L at 25°C.Ksp= [Bi3+]2[S2-]3=(2.0 x 10-15)2 (3.0 x 10-15)3 = 1.1 x 10-73HW odd on page 743Bi2S3(s) ↔2Bi3+(aq) +3S2- (aq)INot neededC-1.0 x = -x+2x+3xE2.0 x 10-153.0 x 10-15
8 Calculating Solubility from Ksp The Ksp value from Cu(IO3)2 is 1.4 x 10-7 at 25°C. Calculate its solubility.Ksp=[Cu2+][IO3-]2=[x][2x]2=(x)(4x2)=4x31.4 x 10-7=4x3X=3.3 x 10-3 mol/L= Cu(IO3)2 solubilityHW on page 743Cu(IO3)2 (s) ↔Cu2+(aq) +2 IO3- (aq)INot neededC-x+x+2xE
9 Relative Solubilities Use Ksp values to predict relative solubilities of a group of salts.Salts producing the same number of ionsEx. AgI (s), CuI (s), CaSO4 (s)Solubility is directly proportional to Ksp because each compound produces 2 ions.Largest Ksp= most solubleSmallest Ksp= least solubleSalts producing differing numbers of ions.Ex. CuS (s), Ag2S (s), Bi2S3 (s)Solubility NOT directly proportional to Ksp and you have to calculate the solubilities.
11 Common Ion EffectConsider, the solubility of solid Ag2CrO4 (Ksp=9.0x10-12) in a M aqueous solution of AgNO3.What is the common ion?What is the [Ag+]0?What is the [CrO4-2]0?What is the Ksp expression?

13 Solubility of Ag2CrO4 in pure water = 1.3 x 10-4 M Solubility of Ag2CrO4 in M AgNO3=9.0x10-10 M*Note that solubility of a solid is lowered due to the common ion effect.Example on page 743HW and on page 743.
14 pH and SolubilityIf the anion (X-) is an effective base (or HX is a weak acid), the salt MX will increase solubility in an acidic solution.Effective bases include OH-, S2-, CO3-, C2O42-, and CrO42-.Salts with these anions are more soluble in acidic solutions that pure water.HW (in reference to 15.81) on page 743
15 Precipitation Precipitation: the formation of a solid from solution Ion Product (Q)=defined the same as Ksp except initial concentrations are usedEx. Ca(NO3)2 (aq) is mixed with NaF (aq). What is the ion product for CaF2?Q=[Ca2+]0[F-]02
16 To predict if precipitation will occur: If Q>Ksp, precipitation occurs until concentrations are reduced to satisfy Ksp.If Q<Ksp, no precipitation occurs.
17 Determining Precipitation Conditions A solution is prepared by adding mL of 4.00 x 10-3 M Ce(NO3)3 to mL of 2.00 x 10-2 M KIO3. Will Ce(IO3)3 (Ksp=1.9 x 10-10) precipitate from this solution?Calculate initial conditions.Solve for Q.Q=[Ce3+]0[IO3-]03=(2.86x10-3)(5.71x10-3)3= 5.32 x 10-10Compare Q to Ksp.Q>Ksp, so Ce(IO3)3 will precipitate.Example on page 743 (Ksp values on page 718)
18 Precipitation and Equilibrium Concentrations A solution is prepared by mixing mL of 1.00x10-2 M Mg(NO3)2 and mL of 1.00x10-1 M NaF. Calculate the concentrations of Mg2+ and F- at equilibrium with solid MgF2 (Ksp=6.4x10-9).

22 Selective Precipitation Using anions that form precipitates with only one or a few metal ions in a mixture in order to separate the metal ions.Most insoluble sulfide salts can be precipitated in an acidic solutions.Soluble sulfide salts can be precipitated by making the solution slightly basic.

If a source of I- is added gradually to this solution, will PbI2 (Ksp=1.4x10-8) or CuI (Ksp=5.3x10-12) precipitate first? Specify the [I-] necessary to begin precipitation of each salt.-For PbI2: Ksp=1.4x10-8=[Pb2+][I-]21.4x10-8=(2.0x10-3) [I-]2[I-]=2.6 x 10-3 M is necessary to begin precipitation-For CuI: Ksp=5.3x10-12=[Cu+][I-]5.3x10-12=(1.0x10-4)[I-][I-]=5.3x10-8 M is necessary to begin precipitation*CuI will precipitate first since [I-] required is less.HW on page 744
