How can we use equilibrium constants to predict solubility?

I don't think you actually can use the equilibrium constant to predict solubility. They are related but they don't depend on each other I think.

The higher the constant Ksp, the greater the solubility. Think about this conceptually. Something that has a high Ksp favors the products so it must be very soluble or dissolvable...
