Determination of Structure from Spectroscopy Discussion


Determination of Ksp Postlab

Please do not give short (one or two word answers) to the questions.

ALL Answers must be written by hand directly into your lab notebooks.

  1. A solution is prepared by mixing 34.2 mL of 0.050 M Sc3+ with 60.1 mL of 0.050 M OH. After mixing, a precipitate of Sc(OH)3 settles out and the resulting solution is found spectrophotometrically to be 0.01370 M in Sc3+. Determine the Ksp of Sc(OH)3.



  1. AgCl is very insoluble in water (Ksp = 1.6 x 10−10) but when sodium cyanide (NaCN) is added, it dissolves readily. Propose a reasoning for this. Hint: Use the following equation to find your answer.

Ag+ (aq) + 2 CN– (aq) ↔ [Ag(CN)2]– (aq) Keq = 5.6 x 1018
