About This Quiz and Worksheet

The quiz and worksheet are tools to help gauge your level of understanding regarding solubility and saturation of substances as well as how to find the solubility constant. You will learn what solubility is and how it's expressed as well as how to determine the solubility constant from the ion concentration and vice versa.

Quiz and Worksheet Goals

In the assessment you'll be tested on the following:

  • Defining saturated solution
  • How is the solubility constant expressed
  • What makes something soluble
  • How to determine the Ksp
  • What do Ksp values reveal

Skills Practiced

  • Making connections - use understanding of the concept of solubility
  • Critical thinking - apply relevant concepts to examine information about solubility of substances in a different light
  • Problem solving - use acquired knowledge to solve solubility constant practice problems
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define main phrases, such as saturation and soluble

Additional Learning

To further study how to use a solubility constant (Ksp), review the corresponding lesson on how to Use a Solubility Constant (Ksp) in Calculations. The lesson covers the following objectives:

  • Understand how solubility is and how is it expressed
  • Know when a substance is considered soluble or insoluble
  • Define saturation
  • Understand equilibrium
  • Know how to find the solubility constant (Ksp)
