Question

If the solubility product of CuS is 6 × 10−16, calculate the maximum molarity of CuS in aqueous solution.

Solution

Solubility product of CuS, Ksp = 6 × 10−16

Let s be the solubility of CuS in mol L−1.

CuS  ↔ Cu2+ + S2-

                          s        s

Now K_(sp) = [Cu2+][S2-]

=  sxs

=s2

Then, we have, Ksp = s2  = 6 x10-16

`=> s  = sqrt(6xx10^(-16)) `

= 2.45 × 10−8 mol L−1

Hence, the maximum molarity of CuS in an aqueous solution is 2.45 × 10−8 mol L−1

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
