Solubility Product Constants at 25 Degrees Celsius

Ionic Equilibrium Table

By

The solubility product works as follows: In a water solution at equilibrium with a slightly soluble ionic compound, the product of the concentration of the ions, raised to the power of its coefficient in the solubility equation, is a constant. The solubility constant, Ksp, has a fixed value at a given temperature and is independent of the concentration of the individual ions. Here are values of Ksp for several slightly soluble ionic solids:

Actetates
AgC2H3O2 -- 2 x 10-3
