If the solubility product for BaF2 is 1.7 x 10-6 at 25 º C.  Acording to my calculations the molar solubility is   1.3 x 10-3 M. Can anyone verify this for me?

P.S. I still have not been able to utilize the subscript, can anyone indicate the procedure?   The -3 and -6 are suppose to be subscripted!

Ksp=[Ca2+ ]x[F- ]2
[F- ]=2[Ca2+ ]
Hence molar solubility= [Ca2+ ]=SQRT(Ksp/4)=7.5x10-3

Thank you I see were I made my mistake I had calculated the wrong numerals. Thanks again.

[F- ]=2[Ca2+ ]
Hence molar solubility= [Ca2+ ]=SQRT(Ksp/4)=7.5x10-3

I think you meant [Ba2+ ], not [Ca2+ ]

However, since
[F- ]=2[Ba2+ ]
then
Ksp=[Ba2+ ]x[F- ]2 = 4 [Ba]2+ ] 3

Hence, molar solubility is ( Ksp/4 ) 1/3

Thanks, Geodome
I put wrong cation, but calculations ar OK.
