Mercury(I) chloride, $\mathrm{Hg}_{2} \mathrm{Cl}_{2},$ was formerly administered orally as a purgative. Although we usually think of mercury compounds as highly toxic, the $K_{\mathrm{sp}}$ ofmercury(I) chloride is small enough $\left(1.3 \times 10^{-18}\right)$ that the amount of mercury that dissolves and enters the bloodstream is tiny. Calculate the concentration of mercury $(\mathrm{I})$ ion present in a saturated solution of $\mathrm{Hg}_{2} \mathrm{Cl}_{2}$ .

$0.69 \times 10^{-6} \mathrm{mol} / \mathrm{L},$ or $, 0.32 \mathrm{mg} / \mathrm{L}$

And so for the question here we have to calculate the concentration of Mercury Ein. And this is where solution of market regular. Right. So first we will write destination reaction for the given compound here. Mercury tolerate. We can secure inter Mark curricular right is u T to positive Plus to see out negative. Yeah, because we do not know the celebrity of this solid. We will assume that X small per liter resolves to reach equilibrium. Therefore, he'll eggs small per liter more curricular, right in solid spread do X small per liter n g two positive mhm plus two eggs mall per liter cl negative. And it was home. Well, it is equilibrium. There we go. Yeah, 82 2 positive concentration is equal to x small Molitor and next is concentration of chlorine is equal to two eggs more holy too substituting these concentrations into the equilibrium expression skills Your cell ability product constant is equal to 1.3 multiply Terrorist to the power minus 18 is equal to concentration of h E to positive into concentration of chlorine musical two eggs, two eggs whole secure is equal to four x care this for X Cube is equal to 1.3. Multiply generous to the power minus 18 mm X cubed is equal to 1.3. Multiply 10 raised to the power minus 18. Divided by four is equal to 0.3 to 5. Multiply 10 raised to the power minus 18. Yeah, so here X is equal to and there are three 0.3 to 5. Multiply 10 raised to the power minus 18 is equal to 0.69 Multiply 10 raised to the power minus six. More political is equal to 0.69 Multiply 10 raised to the power. Minus six more per liter into 47 2.6 More grand per remote. Music will, too. 3.2 multiply 10 raised to the power minus four. Grandpa litter is equal to 0.32 My leg and tell you to into your concentration of mercury to a positive is equal to eggs. So the concentration of mercury are situated in saturated solution. Easier So the concentration of mercury. Mercury ein in saturated. Uh huh. Solution. Okay. Okay. Is 0.69 Multiply 10 raised to the power minus six. Come on. Her leader are 0.32 mg per liter. Yeah, yeah, yeah. What
