1 Activity and Activity Coefficients

2 Chemical Equilibrium Electrolyte Effects Electrolytes: Substances producing ions in solutions Can electrolytes affect chemical equilibria? (A) “Common Ion Effect”  Yes Decreases solubility of BaF 2 with NaF F - is the “common ion”

3 Fig Predicted effect of excess barium ion on solubility of BaSO 4. The common ion effect is used to decrease the solubility. Sulfate concentration is the amount in equilibrium and is equal to the BaSO 4 solubility. In absence of excess barium ion, solubility is M. The common ion effect is used to decrease the solubility. Sulfate concentration is the amount in equilibrium and is equal to the BaSO 4 solubility. In absence of excess barium ion, solubility is M. ©Gary Christian, Analytical Chemistry, 6th Ed. (Wiley)

4 (B) No common ion: “inert electrolyte effect”or “diverse ion effect” Add Na 2 SO 4 to saturated solution of AgCl Increases solubility of AgCl Why??? shielding of dissociated ion species

5 Predicted effect of increased ionic strength on solubility of BaSO 4. Solubility at zero ionic strength is 1.0 x M. K sp = K sp 0 /f Ag + f SO42- Solubility increases with increasing ionic strength as activity coefficients decrease. K sp = K sp 0 /f Ag + f SO42- Solubility increases with increasing ionic strength as activity coefficients decrease. ©Gary Christian, Analytical Chemistry, 6th Ed. (Wiley)

8 Chemical Equilibria Electrolyte Effects Diverse ion (Inert) electrolyte effect For  < 0.1 M, electrolyte effect depends on  only, NOT on the type of electrolyte Solute activities: a x = activity of solute X a x = [X]  x  x = activity coefficient for X As      x  1, a x  [X]

9 Chemical Equilibria Electrolyte Effects Diverse Ion (Inert Electrolyte) Effect: Add Na 2 SO 4 to saturated solution of AgCl K sp = a Ag +. a Cl - = 1.75 x At high concentration of diverse (inert) electrolyte: higher ionic strength,  a Ag + < [Ag + ] ; a Cl - < [Cl - ] a Ag +. a Cl - < [Ag + ] [Cl - ] K sp < [Ag + ] [Cl - ] ;  K sp < [Ag + ] = solubility Solubility = [Ag + ] >  K sp

10 Diverse Ion Effect on Solubility: Presence of diverse ions will increase the solubility of precipitates due to shielding of dissociated ion species.
