$K_{sp} = [Sr^{2+}][S{O_4}^{2-}]$

Work Step by Step

1. Identify the ions, and write the equilibrium reaction for the dissociation of the salt $(SrSO_4)$: - $Sr^{2+}$ and $S{O_4}^{2-}$ - $SrSO_4(s) \lt -- \gt Sr^{2+}(aq) + S{O_4}^{2-}(aq)$ 2. Balance the reaction: - $1 SrSO_4(s) \lt -- \gt 1Sr^{2+}(aq) + 1S{O_4}^{2-}(aq)$ 3. Write the $K_{sp}$ expression: - Multiply the concentrations of the ions. - The balancing coefficients are used to determine the exponents of the concentrations. - $K_{sp} = [Sr^{2+}]^1 \times [S{O_4}^{2-}]^1$
