What is Ksp: Definition and 55 Discussions

Kulspruta m/42 (ksp m/42), Swedish designation for a heavily modified, license-built derivative of the M1919A6 chambered in 6.5×55mm or 8×63mm patron m/32 and from 1975 in 7.62×51mm NATO.
The Ksp m/42B was a lighter version with a distinctive bipod, shoulder stock (used in a similar way as the M1919A6) and a spade grip chambered in 6.5×55mm and later in 7.62×51mm which can be recognised in its corrosion resistant green finish.It was used by Swedish forces during the Congo Crisis.

    Chemistry What precipitates form by mixing 2 saturated solutions?

    At first I thought it was C. A few sources agree with me. The book says D is correct. Here was my reasoning for C: With both salts having a formula of MX3, their [OH-]'s can be compared according to their Ksp values. Tl(OH)3 has a smaller Ksp, so it has a smaller [OH-] at saturation than...

    Was KSP a somewhat accurate space flight simulator?

    KSP was one of the most famous science games as it simulates a complete space program, as well as physics such as aerodynamics and orbital mechanics. Such science focused games are rare, and something favourable amongst nerds. To make it even better, it is easy to modify the game and add almost...
