Why are BeSO4 and MgSO4 readily


Why are BeSO4 and MgSO4 readily soluble in water while CaSO4, SrSO4 and BaSO4 are insoluble?


BeSO4 and MgSO4 are readily soluble in water, CaSO4, SrSO4, and BaSO4 are insoluble. This is because the greater hydration enthalpies of Be2+ and Mg2+ ions

overcome the lattice enthalpy factor and therefore their sulphate is soluble in water.
