a. 1.85x10^-11

b. 9.3x10^-12

c. 3.7x10^-11

d. 8.8x10^-3

CaF2 ==> Ca^+2 + 2F^-

Ksp = (Ca^+2)(F^-)^2

You know solubility CaF2 = 2.1 x 10^-4; therefore, (Ca^+2) = 2.1 x 10^-4. Since (F^-) is twice that, (F^-) = 4.2 x 10^-4. Plug those values into the Ksp expression I wrote above and solve for Ksp. Post your work if you get stuck.
