 What is molar solubility? How can you obtain the molar solubility of a compound from Ksp ?


Expert Answer

Step 1

All known compounds can be dissolve in certain solvents whereas they remain insoluble in other solvents. The solubility of any substance can be determined with the help of solubility product.

Step 2

Solubility product of any compounds can be defined as the mathematical product of dissolved ion concentrations of any compound raised to the power of their stoichiometric coefficients. It is represented as Ksp.

Step 3

Molar solubility can be defined as the number of moles of solute that can be dissolved in 1 liter of solution be...
