The circumstance under which the relative solubilities of the two salts can be directly compared by comparing the values of their solubility product is to be stated. The condition when a relative solubility cannot be compared based on K sp values is to be stated. Concept introduction: The solubility is defined as the maximum amount of solute that can dissolve at a certain amount of solvent at certain temperature. The solubility product K sp is an equilibrium product that is applied when salt partially dissolve in a solvent.
