Solubility equilibria of salts

Solubility products

This lesson is divided into two parts:

Part 1 covers the basics of solubility equilibria
and solubility products.

It is probably all that is needed for most
introductory general chemistry courses.

Part 2 provides more detail on specific solubility
systems and discusses some of the limitations
of solubility products.

This will be most useful to students doing
qualitative analysis lab work, or enrolled in an analytical chemistry course

Please note that these lessons assume that you have a basic understanding of chemical equilibria, equilibrium constants, and the LeChâtelier principle. If you need to review these topics, please see Sections 1-4 of the Chemical Equilibrium lesson set.
