# EXERCISES of CHAPTER 5

## 1. At room temperature, a saturated solution of PbCl2 contains 1.004 g of this salt in a

250 mL solution. (Atomic weights (g/mol): Cl = 35.5; Pb = 207.2).
a) Calculate the solubility product of PbCl2.
b) Determine if this Pb salt will precipitate when mixing 10 cm3 of NaCl 0.1M with 30cm3
of Pb(NO3)2 0.01 M.

## 2. At 25 C, 1.31 x 10-5 moles of silver chloride are dissolved in 1L of water. Calculate:

a) Solubility product of silver chloride at this temperature.
b) Solubility of silver chloride (g.L-1) in a 10-2 M solution of NaCl.
Atomic weights (umas): Ag = 108; Cl = 35.5

## 3. For a saturated solution of silver phosphate, determine:

a) Solubility of this salt, expressed in g/L.
b) Solution volume that we need to evaporate in order to obtain 11.8 mg of this salt.
Data: Ks = 10-18; Atomic weights (umas): Ag = 108; P = 31; O = 16.

## 4. Ten milliliters of 0.20 M AgNO3 is added to 10 mL of 0.10 M NaCl. Calculate the

concentration of Cl- remaining in solution at equilibrium, and the solubility of the AgCl.
Data: Ks (AgCl) = 1.0 x 10-10.

5. What must be the concentration of added Ag+ to just start precipitation of AgCl in a
1.0 x 10-3 M solution of NaCl? Data: Ks (AgCl) = 1.0 x 10-10.

6. A mixture containing only KCl and NaBr is analyzed by the Mohr method. A 0.3172
g sample is dissolved in 50 mL of water and titrated to the Ag2CrO4 end point, requiring
36.14 mL of 0.1120 M AgNO3. Report the %w/w KCl and NaBr in the sample.

7. The %w/w I in a 0.6712 g sample was determined by a Volhard titration. After adding
50.00 mL of 0.05619 M AgNO3 and allowing the precipitate to form, the remaining silver
was back titrated with 0.05322 M KSCN, requiring 35.14 mL to reach the end point.
Report the %w/w I in the sample.

## 8. A 1.963 g sample of an alloy is dissolved in HNO3 and diluted to volume in a 100 mL

volumetric flask. Titrating a 25.00 mL portion with 0.1078 M KSCN requires 27.19 mL
to reach the end point. Calculate the %w/w Ag in the alloy.
