Calculate the solubility product of calcium hydroxide if the solubility of Ca(OH)2(s) in water at 25◦C is 0.011 M.

Choices:
1. 1.1 × 10−5
2. 5.3 × 10−6
3. 2.7 × 10−6
4. 1.5 × 10−8
5. 1.2 × 10−4

1. Ca(OH)2 ==> Ca^2+ + 2OH^-
Ksp = (Ca^2+)(OH^=)^2
Set up an ICE chart, substitute into the Ksp expression and solve for Ksp.
The problem tells you that the solubility of Ca(OH)2 is 0.011M, therefore, (Ca^2+) must be 0.011M and (OH^-) must be twice that. Plug and chug.
