Ksp Video Lessons
Concept: Understanding the Solubility Product Constant.
Example: Consider the following compounds. Which has the highest concentration of OH- ions?
a) Co(OH)2 Ksp = 1.3 x 10-15
b) Cu(OH)2 Ksp = 2.2 x 10-20
c) Ni(OH)2 Ksp = 6.0 x 10-16
d) Fe(OH)2 Ksp = 4.1 x 10-15
e) Zn(OH)2 Ksp = 3.0 x 10-16
Example: The solubility of silver sulfate, Ag2SO4, is 0.025 M at 25oC. Calculate its solubility product constant, Ksp.
Use the molar solubility 3.27 x 10–11 in pure water to calculate Ksp for NiS.
