a) 3Fe(OH)3(s) + Cr(s) = Cr(OH)3(s) + 3Fe(OH)2(s)

b) let x be the mol/liter of solid  BaSO4.

Molar solubility = Ba2+ + SO4-2

In each case the charge is 2

therefore 1.1*10-10 = x2

thus x = square root in both cases that gives 1.05*10-5

therefore the solubilty of BaSO4 in pure water is 1.05*10-5

c) Molar solubility is given by

 8×10^-16/1 *1/89.68 = 8.9 *10 -18

the molar solubility of  Fe(OH)2 i given by 4s3

thus the solubuty in moles = 4(8.9*1018)3

= 1.608 * 10-66 moles

in g =1.608*1066/89.86

1.78*10-68
