How do you determine solubility from the equilibrium constant?

Higher equilibrium constants indicate higher rates of solubility because for a solubility reaction, the products are the dissolved ions and the reactants are the undissolved solute.

If given the equilibrium constant, the higher the value, the higher a substance's solubility is. The equilibrium constant refers to the product of the concentration of the ions that are present in a saturated solution of an ionic compound, it is given the name solubility product constant. Therefore you can assume that they have a proportional relationship.
