What Is a Common Ion?

Answer

A common ion is one formed as a result of an effect created when two substances ionize in a chemical equilibrium. This results in a solution with the same ion. For example, when a sodium chloride solution is added to a suspension of silver chloride, the solubility of silver chloride is reduced due to the presence of the common ion, chloride.
