The solubility product constant, or Ksp, is a mathematical expression that exhibits the solubility of an ionic compound. The higher the solubility product constant, the more dissociated an ionic compound can be in water. More » Science Chemistry Solutions & Mixtures

The molar solubility equation is the symbolic representation of the maximum number of moles of a substance able to dissolve in one liter of solvent. Molar solubility is described as the number of moles of a substance tha... More » Science Chemistry Chemical Equations

Molar solubility can be calculated from KSP by writing the chemical equation for the substance and then dissolving and dissociating so that the KSP expression can be written and then the concentration of each individual ... More »

The solubility of copper depends on the nature of the copper compound and the solvent used. In its metallic state, copper is soluble in nitric acid and sulphuric acid at a high temperature. Some copper salts are soluble ... More »

Stirring has no effect on solubility. Solubility is defined as the amount of substance that dissolves in a given amount of solvent and is determined by adding a solvent to a solute until no more solvent dissolves even wi... More »

The temperature, the polarity of the solutes and solvent, the pressure, and the molecular size affect solubility. All of these factors play roles in determining which solutes dissolve in which solvents. More »

Real-life examples of solubility include adding sugar to hot coffee, stirring a bouillon packet into hot water and taking medications that quickly absorb into the blood stream. A negative example of solubility is the dis... More »
