1.        Solubility product of a salt at a given temperature is equal to the product of concentration of the ions in a saturated solution with each concentration term raised to a power equal to the number of ions produced on dissociation of one mole of a substance. 

   In general, if sparingly soluble salt AxBy  is in equilibrium with a saturated solution of its ions, then


Solubility expression is
