Self Test 5G.3A

Postby GFolk_1D » Mon Jan 06, 2020 2:30 pm

Write the equilibrium constant fir the reaction 2 AgNO3 (aq) + 2NaOH (aq)-----> Ag2O (s) + 2NaNO3 (aq) + H2O (l)

I'm a bit confused as to how to take the net ionic equation into account. Thanks!

For the net ionic equation, you should separate the ions in all compounds and cancel out ions that appear in both the reactants and products side. For this particular problem, both Na+ and NO3- will be cancelled out, leaving the equation as just 2Ag + 2OH- yields Ag20 + H2O. Then write your equilibrium constant for this reaction.

For this problem, also remember that the activity of solids and liquids is 1, so you would not consider them when calculating.

Do you normally use the net iconic equation when calculating the equilibrium constant?

Dr. Lavelle hasn't mentioned anything yet about using the ionic equations, so I think it might be a strategy specific to this problem/problems like it.
