# What are three factors that affect the rate at which something will dissolve?

Apr 29, 2017

$\text{(i) particle size of the solute:}$ smaller particle size will favour dissolution.

#### Explanation:

$\text{(ii) temperature of the solvent:}$ dissolution is generally a bond-breaking process, which is favoured by higher temperatures.........

$\text{(iii) intrinsic solubility of the solute:}$ a solute might have good or indifferent solubility in the solvent.

So there are three. These are both kinetic and thermodynamic factors. Do I win £5-00?
