Homework Help: Finding the Ksp of KHT

  1. Mar 15, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Determine [K+] and [HT-] in this solution. If the temperature is Tp, a trace of solid is present and reaction is at equilibrium. Determine Ksp at this temperature.
    There is 0.950 g of KHT dissolved in 25.00 mL of solution.

    2. Relevant equations
    KHT(s) ⇔ K+(aq) + HT-(aq)
    Ksp = [K+][HT-]

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I originally thought to set up an ICE table to find the concentrations of K+ and HT- at equilibrium. With the concentrations, I figured I could then multiply them to get my Ksp value. I realized, however, I do not have a Kc value to use to solve for x. Is there any other way to find Ksp that I'm just missing?

    No need for ICE table, all you need to calculate concentrations is a molar mass of KHT.
