WebLecture: Common Ions
Kotz and Triechel, Chemistry and Chemical Reactivity Chapter 17: Sections 5-7.
- 17.5 We can now define a new "special value" for Q. The value of Q at the point at which a reaction reaches saturation is the solubility equilibrium constant Ksp. If Q < Ksp, the solution is not yet saturated. If Q > Ksp, the solution is supersaturated and will precipitate. We can use the relationship between Q (the quotient at an time) and Ksp to predict the outcome of a reaction.
- 17.6 When complex ions are involved in a solution equation, the formation of the ion can be identified by yet another "special Q", Kf, the equilibrium constant for the formation of the ligand bonds with the metal ion.
- 17.7 The relationship of solubility and formation constants determine whether a solid will dissociate in a given solvent. The small solubility value of a solute in water indicates that it does not dissolve, but if one of the solute components will form a complex ion with another molecule, the solute will dissolve in a solvent containing that moleucule.
