SOLUBILITY Saturated Solution BaSO 4(s) Ba 2+ (aq) + SO 4 2- (aq) Equilibrium expresses the degree of solubility of solid in water. Equilibrium expresses the degree of solubility of solid in water. K sp = solubility product constant K sp = K eq [BaSO 4 ] (s) K sp = [Ba 2+ ] [SO 4 2- ] = 1.1 x 10 -10 K sp represents the amount of dissolution (how much solid dissolved into ions), the smaller the K sp value, the smaller the amount of ions in solution (more solid is present).

Solubility and Common Ion effect CaF 2(s) Ca 2+ (aq) + 2F - (aq) The addition of Ca 2+ or F - shifts the equilibrium. According to Le Chatelier’s Principle, more solid will form thus reducing the solubility of the solid. The addition of Ca 2+ or F - shifts the equilibrium. According to Le Chatelier’s Principle, more solid will form thus reducing the solubility of the solid. Solubility of a salt decreases when the solute of a common ion is added.

CRITERIA FOR PRECIPITATION OF DISSOLUTION BaSO 4(s) Ba 2+ (aq) + SO 4 2- (aq) Equilibrium can be established from either direction. Q (the Ion Product) is used to determine whether or not precipitation will occur. Q < K solid dissolves Q = K equilibrium (saturated solution) Q > K ppt
Sample Problem 3 Predicting Whether a Precipitate Will Form PROBLEM:A common laboratory method for preparing a precipitate is to mix solutions of the component ions. Does a precipitate form when 0.100L of 0.30M Ca(NO 3 ) 2 is mixed with 0.200L of 0.060M NaF? PLAN:Write out a reaction equation to see which salt would be formed. Look up the K sp valus in a table. Treat this as a reaction quotient, Q, problem and calculate whether the concentrations of ions are > or < K sp. Remember to consider the final diluted solution when calculating concentrations. SOLUTION:CaF 2 (s) Ca 2+ (aq) + 2F - (aq) K sp = 3.2x10 -11 mol Ca 2+ = 0.100L(0.30mol/L) = 0.030mol[Ca 2+ ] = 0.030mol/0.300L = 0.10M mol F - = 0.200L(0.060mol/L) = 0.012mol[F - ] = 0.012mol/0.300L = 0.040M Q = [Ca 2+ ][F - ] 2 =(0.10)(0.040) 2 = 1.6x10 -4 Q is >> K sp and the CaF 2 WILL precipitate.
CRITERIA FOR PRECIPITATION OF DISSOLUTION 1. Calcium phosphate has a K sp of 1 x 10 -26, if a sample contains 1.0 x 10 -3 M Ca 2+ & 1.0 x 10 -8 M PO 4 3- ions, calculate Q and predict whether Ca 3 (PO 4 ) 2 will precipitate? 2.Exactly 0.400 L of 0.50 M Pb 2+ & 1.60 L of 2.5 x 10 -8 M Cl - are mixed together to form 2.00L. Calculate Q and predict if a ppt will occur. K sp = 1.6 x 10 -5
EFFECT OF pH ON SOLUBILITY CaF 2 Ca 2+ + 2F - 2F - + 2H + 2HF CaF 2 + 2H + Ca 2+ + 2HF Salts of weak acids are more soluble in acidic solutions. Thus shifting the solubility to the right. Salts with anions of strong acids are largely unaffected by pH.
Sample Problem 4 Predicting the Effect on Solubility of Adding Strong Acid PROBLEM:Write balanced equations to explain whether addition of H 3 O + from a strong acid affects the solubility of these ionic compounds: (a) Lead ( II ) bromide(b) Copper ( II ) hydroxide(c) Iron ( II ) sulfide PLAN:Write dissolution equations and consider how strong acid would affect the anion component. Br - is the anion of a strong acid. No effect. SOLUTION:(a) PbBr 2 ( s ) Pb 2+ ( aq ) + 2Br - ( aq ) (b) Cu(OH) 2 ( s ) Cu 2+ ( aq ) + 2OH - ( aq ) OH - is the anion of water, which is a weak acid. Therefore it will shift the solubility equation to the right and increase solubility. (c) FeS( s ) Fe 2+ ( aq ) + S 2- ( aq )S 2- is the anion of a weak acid and will react with water to produce OH -. Both weak acids serve to increase the solubility of FeS. FeS( s ) + H 2 O( l ) Fe 2+ ( aq ) + HS - ( aq ) + OH - ( aq )
EFFECT OF pH ON SOLUBILITY 1. Consider the two slightly soluble salts BaF 2 and AgBr.Which of these two would have its solubility more affected by the addition of a strong acid? Would the solubility of that salt increase or decrease. 2. What is the molar solubility of silver chloride in 1.0 L of solution that contains 2.0 x 10 -2 mol of HCl?
3 STEPS TO DETERMINING THE ION CONCENTRATION AT EQUILIBRIUM I. Calculate the [Ion] i that occurs after dilution but before the reaction starts. II. Calculate the [Ion] when the maximum amount of solid is formed. - we will determine the limiting reagent and assume all of that ion is used up to make the solid. - The [ ] of the other ion will be the stoichiometric equivalent. III. Calculate the [Ion] at equilibrium*. *Since we assume the reaction went to completion, yet by definition a slightly soluble can’t, we must account for some of the solid re-dissolving back into solution.

Calculate the [Ag + ] and [CrO 4 2- ] remaining in solution at equilibrium. 2. Suppose 300 mL of 8 x 10 -6 M solution of KCl is added to 800 mL of 0.004 M solution of AgNO 3. Calculate [Ag + ] and [Cl - ] remaining in solution at equilibrium.
