COMMON ION EFFECT IN SOLUBILITY EQUILIBRIUM<br />
(2 of 2).<br />
Adding Na2SO4 To Ag2SO4- After Addition<br />
There are still two cations for each sulfate, but most of the cations are Na+.  The added sulfate ion decreases the solubility of silver sulfate, resulting in a precipitate.  A new equilibrium is established with less silver ion in solution.
