Textbook Problem

What happens to the Ksp value of a solid as the temperature of the solution changes? Consider both increasing and decreasing temperatures, and explain your answer.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The change in Ksp value due to increase and decrease in temperature is to be stated.

Concept introduction: Solubility product, Ksp is defined as the product of the concentration of ions in a saturated solution where each ion is raised to the power of their coefficients.

Explanation

Explanation

To determine: The change in Ksp value when temperature increases and decreases.

The Ksp value will increase when temperature increases.

Solubility product, Ksp is defined as the concentration of ions in a saturated solution where each ion is raised to the power of their coefficients. Solubility of solids increases with increase in temperature and increase in solubility leads to increase in the formation of ions.

For example,

MX(s)M+(aq)+X(aq)

Where,

  • MX is a binary compound.
  • M+ is cation.
  • X is anion
