In this lesson, we will learn how to use the solubility product of an ionic material to find the concentrations of dissolved ions.

Q1:

Clothing may be stained during washing if the water has a M n 2 + ion concentration 0.1 mg/L ( 1 . 8 Γ 1 0 β 6 M), but the amount of M n 2 + in the water can be reduced by adding a base.
