Does the solubility of gases in water increase with increasing temperature?

1 Answer

Answer:

The simple answer is NO!

Explanation:

Solubility generally increases with temperature, but we could add the proviso that this applies to solutes that were solids before dissolution. We note that as temperature increases the equilibrium,
#H_2O(l) rightleftharpoons H_2O(g)#
moves to the right. At water's boiling point what is the value of this equilibrium in atmospheres?
