• Solubility product; the common ion effect and complex ion formation

Learning Outcomes

Candidates should be able to:

(a) show understanding of, and apply, the concept of solubility product, Ksp

(b) calculate Ksp from concentrations and vice versa

(c) discuss the effects on the solubility of ionic salts by the following:

(i) common ion effect

(ii) formation of complex ion, as exemplified by the reactions of halide ions with aqueous silver ions followed by aqueous ammonia (see also Section 13)
