Calcium sulfate is sometimes added to wine both to clarity and to percipitate dissolved lead. Given the following Ksp values, what [Pb^2+] remains in wine that is saturated with CaSO4? (Ksp CaSO4=9.1*10^-6, Ksp PbSO4= 1.6*10^-8)© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 16, 2018, 2:28 pm ad1c9bdddf - https://brainmass.com/chemistry/chemical-equilibrium/calcium-sulfate-is-sometimes-added-to-wine-both-to-clarity-a-105587

Ionic compounds normally dissociate into their constituent ions when they dissolve in water. For example, for calcium sulfate:
The equilibrium expression is:
