- The compound in the middle has the largest $K_{sp}$, because it has the larger quantity of dissociated ions. - The ionic compound in the right has the smallest $K_{sp}$ value, because it has the smaller quantity of dissociated ions.

Work Step by Step

In this case, the $K_{sp}$ of the ionic compound is proportional to the amount of dissociated ions in each solution. Therefore, the larger the quantity of dissociated ions, the greater the $K_{sp}$.
