Silver chromate is sparingly soluble in aqueous solutions. The {eq}K_{sp} {/eq} of {eq}Ag_2CrO_4 {/eq} is {eq}1.12 \times 10^{-12} {/eq}. What is the solubility (in mol/L) of silver chromate in a 1.00 M silver nitrate aqueous solution?

Sparingly Soluble Salt:

A sparingly soluble salt has very limited solubility in water. The terms solubility product constant is used for the sparingly soluble salts. The solubility product constant for a sparingly soluble salt is the product of the molar concentrations of salt ions present in the saturated solution.
