# What is KSP equation?

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.

Also question is, how do you find the solubility product expression?

Calculate the solubility product. The equilibrium is: For every mole of magnesium hydroxide that dissolves, you will get one mole of magnesium ions, but twice that number of hydroxide ions. Now put these numbers into the solubility product expression and do the sum.

Furthermore, what is the KSP of caoh2? The Ksp of calcium hydroxide, Ca(OH)2, is 5.02 x 10-6.

Subsequently, question is, what is the KSP of caco3?

Calcium carbonate, CaCO_3 has a Ksp value of 1.4 x 10^-8, what is the solubility of CaCO_3?

Does temperature affect KSP?

Just like other equilibrium constants,solubility product holds a constant value at a specific temperature. But it changes with temperature. But one cannot say a general statement as to whether it decreases or increases with temperature. The variations in solubility obviously affect solubility products too.
