Salts and solubility

Add different salts to water, and then watch them dissolve and achieve dynamic equilibrium with the solid precipitate. Compare the number of ions in the highly soluble NaCl solution with other poorly soluble salts. Relate the charges on the ions to the number of ions in the formula of a salt. Calculate the Ksp values.

Sodium Chloride

Sodium chloride, common salt or table salt, referred to in its mineral form as halite, is a chemical compound with the formula NaCl. Sodium chloride is one of the salts responsible for the salinity of the ocean and the extracellular fluid of many organisms. It is also the component of common salt, used as a seasoning and food preservative.
