    CaSO4 → Ca{2+} + SO4{2-}

    Ksp = [Ca{2+}] [SO4{2-}] = 9.1x10^-6

    [Ca{2+}] = √ (9.1x10^-6) = 0.0030166 mol/L

    To produce that concentration of Ca{2+} ions, 0.0030166 mole of CaSO4 must dissolve in a liter of solution.

    (0.0030166 mol/L CaSO4) x (136.1406 g CaSO4/mol) = 0.41068 = 0.41 g/L CaSO4
