TUTORIAL 1
1.

Look at following reactions and find which ones of them have solubility increasing
with temperature.
I. XY(s) + Heat X2+(aq) + Y2II. XY2(s) X2+ (aq) + 2Y- (aq) + Heat
III. XY3(s) X3+ (aq) + 3Y-(aq) + Heat
Answer:
In endothermic solutions, solubility increases with increasing temperature. Thus,
since I. is endothermic reaction solubility of it increases with increasing temperature.
II and III are exothermic reactions, so solubility of them decreases with temperature.

2.

What is the order of solubility of NaCl in the following solvents;


I. Pure water
II. NaNO3(aq)
III. Na2SO4(aq)
Answer:
Solubility of NaCl in pure water is larger than others since they have no common
ions. NaCl has one common ion with NaNO3 and 2 common ion with Na2SO4.
Increase in the number of common ion decreases solubility. Thus; I>II>III

3.

Why is it that ceric sulphate which is a solid inorganic salt becomes less soluble in
water as the temperature increases?
Answer:
Cerium (III) sulfate, become less soluble in water as temperature increases. This
temperature dependence is sometimes referred to as retrograde or inverse solubility,
and exists when a salt's dissolution is exothermic (according to Le Chatelier's
principle, extra heat will cause equilibrium for an exothermic process to shift
towards the reactants). So the dissolution of ceric sulphate decreases with the
increase in the temperature.

Hydrogen sulfide, H2S, is a toxic gas responsible for the odor of rotten eggs. The

The vapor pressure of pure water at 600C is 149 torr. The vapor pressure of water
over a solution at 600C containing equal numbers of moles of water and ethylene
glycol is 67 torr. Is the solution ideal in terms of Raoults law? Justify your answer.
Answer:
Ideal solutions obey Raoults law. Calculate the vapor pressure predicted by Raoults
law and compare it to the experimental vapor pressure. Assume ethylene glycol (eg)
is the solute.

H O eg 0.500; PA A PA0 0.500(149) torr 74.5 torr


2

The vapor pressure of the solution (PA), 67 torr, is less than the value predicted by
Raoults law for an ideal solution. The solution is non-ideal.
6.

At 63.50C, the vapor pressure of H2O is 175 torr, and that of ethanol, C2H5OH, is 400
torr. A solution is made by mixing equal masses of H2O and C2H5OH.
(a) What is the mole fraction of ethanol in the solution?
(b) Assuming ideal-solution behavior, what is the vapor pressure of the solution at
63.50C?
(c) What is the mole fraction of ethanol in the vapor pressure above the solution?

Write the equation for dissolving SrF2 in water:


SrF2(s) Sr2+(aq) + 2F-(aq)
Write the equilibrium expression:
Ksp = [Sr2+][F-]2 = 2.5 x 10-9
Determine the relative concentrations of each ion:
at equilibrium [Sr2+] = x and [F-] = 2x (from the balanced chemical
equation)
Substitute these vales into the equilibrium expression:
2.5 x 10-9 = [x][2x]2 = 4x3
Solve for x:
2.5 x 10-9 4 = x3 = 6.25 x 10-10
x = 36.25 x 10-10 = 8.5 x 10-4M

The solubility of SrF2 at 25oC is 8.5 x 10-4 M


8.5 x 10-4 moles of SrF2 will dissolve in 1L of water at 25oC.

FAC0025, Trimester January 2013

(b) Chemical analysis gave [Sr2+] = 0.012 M, and [F-] = 0.024 M in a solution. Is the
solution saturated, supersaturated or unsaturated?
Answer:
Qsp = [0.012] [0.024]2 = 6.9 x 10-6 > 2.5 x 10-9 (Ksp).
This question deals with the concept of ion product, Qsp.
If Qsp = [Pb2+][Br-]2 > Ksp the solution is supersaturated.
(c) Will a precipitate form if 0.100 L of 0.30 M Ca(NO3)2 is mixed with 0.200 L of
0.060 M NaF? (Ksp for CaF2 at 25oC is 3.2 x 10-11)
Answer:
Method: Calculate Qsp and compare with Ksp.
First: What is the sparingly soluble salt? NaNO3, like all Na+ and NO3- salts, is
very soluble in water it must be CaF2.
CaF2 (s) Ca2+ (aq) + 2 F- (aq)
Ksp = [Ca2+][F-]2 need [Ca2+] and [F-].
a) We start with 0.30 M Ca(NO3)2 = 0.30 M [Ca2+] (100% dissociation)
b) We start with 0.060 M NaF = 0.060 M [F-]

(100% dissociation)

-- but we are mixing two solutions, therefore both will be diluted.


Remember:
[Ca2+]f =

MiVi = MfVf

(i = initial, f = final)

[Ca 2 ]i Vi
(0.30 M)(0.100 L)
=
(0.200 L 0.100 L)

[Ca2+]f = 0.10 M
[F-]f =

[F - ]i Vi
(0.060 M)(0.200 L)
=
(0.300 L)
Vf

[F-]f = 0.040 M
Qsp = [Ca2+][F-]2 = (0.10)(0.040)2 = 1.6 x 10-4
Ksp = 3.2 x 10-11 Qsp > Ksp
CaF2 (s) precipitates until Qsp = Ksp

(a) Write an expression for the solubility product, Ksp, of calcium hydroxide,
Ca(OH)2.
(b) In a titration experiment in the school chemistry laboratory, 20.0 cm3 of an
aqueous calcium hydroxide solution is completely neutralised by 18.2 cm3 of
hydrochloric acid solution with a molar concentration of 0.050 moldm-3.
(i) Determine the hydroxide ion concentration.
(ii) Calculate the solubility product of calcium hydroxide.
(iii) State one use of calcium hydroxide which depends on its solubility in water.
Answer:
(a) Dissociation Equation: Ca(OH)2(aq) Ca2+(aq) + 2OH-(aq)
Solubility constant, Ksp = [Ca2+][OH-]2
(b) (i) The ionic equation for neutralisation is H+(aq) + OH-(aq) H2O(l)
Mole of H+ = 0.050 x (18.2/1000) = 9.10 x 10-4 mol
Since 1 mole of H+ reacts with 1 mole of OH-, thus:
Mole of OH- = 9.10 x 10-4 mol
Therefore, [OH-] = (9.10 x 10-4 mol) / (20.0/1000) = 0.0455 mol dm-3
(ii) Dissociation Equation: Ca(OH)2(aq) Ca2+(aq) + 2OH-(aq)
[Ca2+] = 1/2[OH-] = 0.0455/2
Therefore, Ksp = (0.0455/2)(0.0455)2 = 4.71 x 10-5
(iii) Calcium hydroxide is commonly used in agriculture to reduce the acidity of
soils i.e. liming the soil.

12. Estimate the solubility of barium sulfate in a 0.020 M sodium sulfate solution. The

sulfate.

Substitute into the equilibrium expression and solve for x. We will make the
assumption that since x is going to be very small (the solubility is reduced in the
presence of a common ion), the term "0.020 + x" is the same as "0.020." (You can
leave x in the term and use the quadratic equation or the method of successive
approximations to solve for x, but it will not improve the significance of your
answer.)
1.1 x 10-10 = [x][0.020 + x] = [x][0.020]
x = 5.5 x 10-9 M
