Will a precipitate form if 100ml of 1.0x10^-3 mol/L Pb(NO3)2 solution is added to 100ml of 2.0x10^-3 mol/L MgSO4 solution?

    Yes... PbSO4 is insoluble

    \[Pb(NO_{3})_{2} (aq) + MgSO_{4} (aq) -> PbSO_{4}(s) + Mg^{2+}(aq) + 2NO_{3} ^{-}(aq)\]

    if Ksp of PbSO4 is given we could have a more acurate investigation.....

    a ppt may or may not form, it depends on the concentrations. Ksp calculations will determine whether the combination of ions is concentrated enough to give a ppt.

    I'm sorry!!! I haven't learnt anything about Ksp ... so I don't know that ppt may not form ... I'm sorry...

    @Callisto you are generally correct, a ppt will probably form because PbSO4 is insoluble, but if the concentrations are weak enough, there won't be a ppt

    @JFraser Thank you for giving more information. Consider this case, would there be any ppt?

    in this case,a ppt will not form. the concentration of the combined ions is less than the maximum allowable by the KSP

    Sorry again.. I know I have no right to ask, but can you show how you get the answer?
