The Solubility Rules are a convenient set of guidelines to help us determine if a compound will be soluble or insoluble.

Solubility Rules

Example #1: How many ions will the following soluble compound produce: Na2SO4?

Concept #2: Solubility Rules

Concept #3: Solubility Rules

Example #2: According to the solubility rules, which of the following ionic compounds will be insoluble? 

a) NaNO3                     b) Ca(C2H3O2)2             c) BaSO4                      d) (NH4)2CO3                e) CoClO4

Concept #4: Solubility Rules

Example #3: Based on the chart shown above, determine which of the following substances will be soluble in water. 

a) Al(OH)3                     b) Zn3(PO4)2                  c) Ag2CO3                    d) CaS                          e) MgCrO4

Practice: Based on your understanding of the solubility rules, which of the following ionic compounds will be insoluble? 

Practice: Which pair of compounds is insoluble in water?
