Solubility Product Constant, Ksp is the equilibrium constant for a solid substance dissolving in an aqueous solution. Molar solubility is the number of moles of a substance (the solute) that can be dissolved per liter.


Ksp = [Mm+]n[An-]m

What does the solubility product constant tell us about a compound?

It gives us an indication of its solubility in water. A large solubility constant (Ksp) means it is easily water-soluble. A small Ksp means it is generally insoluble in water.

What can be determined if the ion product is compared to the solubility product constant?

Whether a substance will precipitate can be determined if the ion product is compared to the solubility product constant. The value of any given equilibrium constant is accurate only at a specific temperature.

What does solubility product constant represent?

This is product beween the ions concentration.

How does hot distilled water affect solubility product constant?

The solubility product increases with temperature for endothermic dissolving processes.

Why doesn't table salt have a solubility product constant?

NaCl dissolve so easily that it is not even given a solubility product constant, as this value ( also known as the Ksp) tells us the solubility for compounds that don't readily dissolve.

What is the solubility product constant k?

For a compound AB it is the result of the product [A].[B] in solution.

What is the different between solubility and solubility product in 500 words?

Solubility: the total amount of a solute dissolved in a solvent, at a given temperature, pressure and at saturation.Ex.: Sodium chloride - 359 g/L at room temperature.Solubility product: the concentration of the first ion multiplied by the concentration of the second ion, released by the dissociation of an ionic compound, at equilibrium. The appreciation is made with the solubility product constant:Ksp = [A].[B]Ex.: Lithium fluorideKsp = [Li+].[F-] = 3,8.10-3

Why potassium chromate is more soluble than silver chloride?

Does the small values of the equilibrium constant indicate the insolubility of any compound?

Insolubility, or more correctly, solubility, is measured by the solubility product constant. They are expressed in a number times 10 to a negative power, in very insoluble compounds.
