Solubility equilibria with nonpolar

Hi,

I know how to calculate Ksp for polar solvents and solutes. But what about nonpolar solvents and salutes Many people say it's not possible to calculate that, is that true?? Hope not...

Thanks in advance.

Why would you have a Ksp for a polar solvent?

How do you calculate Ksp?

Hi,

I meant ksp of the solvent. But the question is knowing when an oil will be saturated.
