## Example Questions

### Example Question #1 : Solubility And Equilibrium

Calculate the molar solubility of AgBr in 0.050 M AgNO_{3} at room temperature. The K_{sp} of AgBr is 5.4 x 10^{-13.}

**Possible Answers:**

2.16 x 10^{-11} M

1.08 M

1.57 x 10^{-12} M

1.08 x 10^{-11} M

2.16 M

**Correct answer:**

1.08 x 10^{-11} M

### Example Question #2 : Solubility And Equilibrium

Would the molar solubility of Cr(OH)_{3} increase or decrease as the pH is lowered (i.e. made more acidic)?

**Possible Answers:**

Decrease

Increase

There is no change

Can not be determined

**Correct answer:**

Increase

Since Cr(OH)_{3} is a basic salt, decreasing the pH makes it more soluble.
