Is the solubility of silver (Ag) controlled by pH?

1.0_RXN-activity inputs

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

Solubility of Silver

Conclusion: No, pH is not a controlling factor for the dissolution of metallic silver.
