(i) For silver chromate
`Ag_(2)CrO_(4)` dissolves in water as follows:
`Ag_(2)CrO_(4)(s)hArr 2Ag^(+)(aq) +CrO_(4)^(2-) (aq)`
Let the solubility of salt in water =S
`[Ag^(+)(aq)]=2S, " and "[CrO_(4)^(2-) (aq)] =S , K_(sp) = [Ag^(+) (aq)]^(2)[CrO_(4)^(2-) (aq)]`
`1.10 xx10^(-12) =(2S)^(2) xx (S) =4S^(3)`
`" or "" " S=((1.10xx10^(-12))/(4))^(1//2) =0.65 xx 10^(-4) M`
Molarity of `Ag^(+)` ions `[Ag^(+)] =2S =2 xx 0.65 xx 10^(-4) =1.30 xx 10^(-4) M`
Molarity of `CrO_(4)^(2-) " ions " [CrO_(4)^(2-)] =S =0.65 xx 10^(-4) M`
(II) For barium chromate
`BaCrO_(4)` dissolves in water as follows:
`BaCrO_(4)(s) hArr Ba^(2+) (aq) +CrO_(4)^(2-) (aq)`
