predicting solubility

Postby Payton Kammerer 2B » Mon Mar 09, 2020 11:41 am

One of the learning outcomes is "Use equilibrium constants to predict solubility."
I know from my previous chem experience that the solubility of one particle can be affected by the concentrations of other solutes in the solution. If the equilibrium constant is directly related to solubility, does that mean that high concentrations of other solutes in solution can shift K to favor the side with fewer moles of aqueous particles, just like compressing a gaseous reaction favors the side with fewer moles of gas?

Yes, that is correct. To clarify, this is using Le Chatelier's method.
