When determining the solubility constant for a reaction, I know we can disregard pure solids, but is it true that we can only disregard pure liquids if that liquid is the solvent? Also, can any molecule that has a N, O, or F engage in hydrogen bonding, even if those atoms aren't presently attached to a H atom? Those are just some points from my TPR class that I need checked. Thanks.

Ignore all pure liquids. If it's in the solvent it probably is the solvent. All NOF can hydrogen bond, but if the NOF doesnt have a covalent bond to a hydrogen, then it can only accept an h-bond but cannot donate an h-bond.

For example, Ketones can h-bond to water, but not to other ketones, while water can h-bond to anything with an NOF.

Really? If I remember correctly, my instructor was pretty adamant on only ignoring solvents, not pure liquids.

Well, I've never seen an MCAT problem that had a pure liquid that was not also the solvent. I don't know for sure, but I assume you ignore all liquids.

Ignore all solids and liquids. I've been told that there have never been any aamc tests where liquids have been apart of the ksp equation.

Ksp=products_only

Since products are typically dissolved, aqueous/gas form of reactants :)
