|Solutions and solubility:
Today we discussed the molecular mechanism of making a solution of
two or more components and the structure of water around ions
dissolved in solution. The propensity of a molecule to
dissolve (in our case always in water) is reported in its
equilibrium constant, often called a solubility product, Ksp.
We discussed how to change the concentration of species in solution
through the common ion effect and by adding acids.
