17.4 Solubility and Ksp
Ksp and Molar Solubility
Ksp is the equilibrium constant for an ionic solid dissociating into ions in water.
The molar solubility is the molar concentration of the solid that dissolves/dissociates in water. It is also equal to ‘x’ in an ICE table.
What is the molar solubility of AgCl? (Ksp = 1.8×10-10)
What is the molar solubility of Ag2S? (Ksp = 6.0×10-51)
The molar solubility of BiI3 is 1.32×10-5M. Calculate Ksp.
Which of the following salts has the highest solubility in water?
