Instead of using DI water to prepare your saturated solution, your lab partner used tap water, which in your region has a high Ca2+ content. It’s Taco Tuesday at the cafeteria and you are in a rush, so you decide to proceed with the experiment without making a new solution. How will this affect your solubility product constant calculations? Will it be higher than expected, lower than expected or remain the same? Explain.
