In this way, what is KSP formula?

Solubility product constant is simplified equilibrium constant (Ksp) defined for equilibrium between a solids and its respective ions in a solution. Its value indicates the degree to which a compound dissociates in water. The higher the solubility product constant, the more soluble the compound.

Subsequently, question is, what is the formula for calculating solubility? Solubility indicates the maximum amount of a substance that can be dissolved in a solvent at a given temperature. Such a solution is called saturated. Divide the mass of the compound by the mass of the solvent and then multiply by 100 g to calculate the solubility in g/100g .

In this way, what affects KSP value?

Ksp (Solubility product constant) is the equilibrium between a solid and its respective ions in a solution. The value of the constant identifies the degree of which the compound can dissociate in water. For example the higher the Ksp the more soluble the compound is.

What does KEQ mean?

Keq just tells you what will be favoured at equilibrium. Since Keq = [products]/[reactants] a large value of k (k>>1) means the reaction will favour the products a lot more, meaning when the reaction reached equilibrium you will have mostly products.
