The dissolution Rxn is:

Ca(OH)_2 (S) <--> Ca^+2 (aq) + 2OH- (aq)

Ksp = [OH-]^2[Ca+2]

bracket terms are an indication of concentrations - actually when you really get in to this you will be discussing activities.

Now our next assumption is that these volumes of the dissolved salts are additive. 100 mL + 50 mL ...
