What is often helpful when solving Ksp problems? A chart with the M olar ratios, [I nitial], [C hange], and [E quilibrium] of all products (as a mnemonic remember RICE, MICE, or ICE box). Since the reactant is a solid, it is ignored. PbF 2 (s) Pb 2+ (aq) F (aq) Mole ratio 1 2 [Initial] (M) 0 0 [Change] (M) + x + 2x You are told that the molar solubility of PbF 2 (s) is 2.15 x 10 –3 mol/L. Write the equilibrium chart that will assist you in calculating Ksp. [Equilibrium] (M) x (= 2.15x10 –3 ) 2x (= 4.30x10 –3 ) > solve for Ksp. Ksp = [Pb 2+ ][F ] 2 = [2.15x10 –3 ][4.30x10 –3 ] 2 = 3.98 x 10 –8 What is the common ion effect? When dissolving a solid in water, if one of the ions that the solid dissociates into is already present, less of the solid will dissolve. Explain the common ion effect using CaCl 2 (s) Ca 2+ (aq) + 2Cl (aq) as an example. By adding NaCl to this equilibrium, some CaCl 2 will come out of solution. (Or if the solution initially contains NaCl, less CaCl 2 will dissociate). Additional NaCl increases the concentration of Cl , shifting the equilibrium to the left (Le Chatelier’s principle).

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
