#### Question

The solubility product constant of Ag2CrO4 and AgBr are 1.1 × 10–12 and 5.0 × 10–13respectively. Calculate the ratio of the molarities of their saturated solutions.

#### Solution

Let s be the solubility of Ag2CrO4.

Then Ag_2CrO_4 "↔" Ag^(2+) + 2CrO_4^(-)

K_(sp) = (2s)^2 s = 4s^3

1.1 xx 10^(-12) = 4s^3

s =   6.5 xx 10^(-5) M

Let s´ be the solubility of AgBr.

AgBr_(s) ↔ Ag^+ + Br^(-)

K_(sp) = s^('2) = 5.0 xx 10^(-13)

:. s' = 7.07 xx 10^(-7) M

Therefore, the ratio of the molarities of their saturated solution is s/s' = (6.5 xx 10^(-5) M)/(7.07 xx 10^(-7)M) = 91.9

Is there an error in this question or solution?
