The Ksp of PbCO3 and MgCO3 are 1.5 X 1015 and 1X1015 respectively at 298 K. The concentration of Pb+2 ions in a saturated solution containing MgCO3 and PbCO3 is –
(a)1.5 X104
(b)3X108
(c)2X108
(d)2.5X108

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I didn't this was the ans given in my book ……………….. Since quite a few ans in that book have proven to be incorrect I am not really positive that this is the right ans. If I knew the solution to the question I wouldn't be asking for it on openstudy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well for starters Haha \[PbCO _{3} (Aq) > Pb ^{2+} + CO _{3}^2 \] \[K _{sp} = [x][x] = [Pb ^{2+}][CO _{3}^2]\] \[MgCO _{3}> Mg _{2+} + CO _{3}^2\] \[K _{sp} = [x][x] = Mg ^{2+} CO _{3}^2 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well done the PbCO3 (s) it is insoluble, that is the reason you dont include in the Ksp, the ions are (aq) PbCO3(s)−−>Pb2+(aq)+CO23−(aq) then we have the common ion CO23−(aq) effect in the solubility

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Cuanchi thanks for pointing that out.. i forgot most of the solubility rules, but I never saw a problem where we are given two Ksp values
