# What is an example of a saturation practice problem?

Feb 25, 2016

I assume you are a 1st/2nd year undergraduate. I will give 1 example at this level.

#### Explanation:

Silver chloride is an insoluble species, whose ${K}_{s p} = 1.77 \times {10}^{-} 10$ under standard conditions. (i) represent the solubility equilibrium of silver chloride; (ii) calculate the solubility of silver chloride in $m o l \cdot {L}^{-} 1$, and $g \cdot {L}^{-} 1$; (iii) if the temperature were increased to $350$ $K$, would you expect ${K}_{s p}$ at this temperature to increase or decrease; why?
