    Hi I just had a very quick question. I know that Keq only changes with temperature change. Is this the same with Ksp? For example adding a higher concentration of some ion would not change the Ksp value? Thanks.

    Ksp is only temperature dependent. If you add in one of the components this would be considered a common ion effect and would lower the overall solubility of the compound of interest but would not change Ksp
