Learning Goal: I’m working on a chemistry question and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.

Ks of lithium carbonate is 8.15 10^-4. If 2.34 g of the salt is mixed with 500 ml of water and any undissolved solid is filtered from the solution and dried, what do you think will be the mass of the recovered solid?

You find that your entire sample dissolves. Explain the difference between your predicted and actual value.
