The solubility of an ionic compound decreases in the presence of a common ion. A common
ion is any ion in the solution that is common to the ionic compound being dissolved. For
example, the chloride ion in a sodium chloride solution is common to the chloride in silver
chloride. The presence of a common ion must be taken into account when determining the
solubility of an ionic compound.
