Ammonia, NH3, is a base that ionizes to give NH4^+ and OH^- (Kb=1.8×10^-5). You add magnesium sulfate to an

ammonia solution. Calculate the concentration of Mg^2+ion when magnesium hydroxide, Mg(OH)2, just begins to precipitate from 0.11 M NH3. The Ksp for Mg(OH)2 is 1.8×10^-11.

Concentration = M
