Homework Help: Chemical Equation

  1. Apr 3, 2008 #1
    the Ksp of lead (II) bromide is 6.3E-6. A large amount of PbBr2 sits at the bottom of a beaker with water above it. Equilibrium is reached. Write the chemical equation fo rthe dissociation of lead II bromide as it dissolves for which the Ksp applies.

    -How would i go about solving this problem?

    kokenwa, rethink eli64's question. PbBr2 is an ionic compound, so you should be able to answer his question. Also, PbBr2 is slightly soluble, therefore you should think through to your original question.
