I am going to use a tiny Ag in my system. Activity = 1E-10.
Geochemistry Question: Is the solubility of Ag controlled by pH?
To solve the problem, let’s build a activity diagram for Ag with Geochemist’s Workbench.
Command to use:
Act2> diagram Ag+ on Ag+ vs pH
Act2> Explain Ag+
Ag+: aqueous species
mole weight = 107.868 g/mol
Conclusion: No, pH is not a controlling factor for the dissolution of metallic silver.
