Textbook Problem

A friend tells you: “The constant Ksp of a salt is called the solubility product constant and is calculated from the concentrations of ions in the solution. Thus, if salt A dissolves to a greater extent than salt B, salt A must have a higher Ksp than salt B.” Do you agree with your friend? Explain.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The concept regarding Ksp is given. The validation of the given statement that if salt A dissolves to a greater extent than salt B, Salt A must have higher Ksp than salt B is to be stated.

Concept introduction: Solubility product is used only for those salts that are sparingly soluble and there exists equilibrium between the solid salt and its ions.

Explanation

Explanation

To determine: that if salt A dissolves to a greater extent than salt B, Salt A must have higher Ksp than salt B.

The product of molar solubility of ions in a solution in moles per liter is called solubility product constant. It defines the degree to which a salt is soluble in a solution. Therefore, it depends on the moles of ions that are present in a solution
