What is one way to increase the rate of dissolving salute in to________ A. Decrease the temperature of the solution B. Let the solute settle to the bottom of the solution C. Stir the solution D. Use a salute with a larger particle size What is the answer?
C. Stir the solution
There's 3 main factors you should know that affect dissolution:
- Temperature : The
#color(blue)("higher")#the temperature, the #color(blue)("more")#solute you will dissolve.
- Agitation: The
#color(blue)("more agitated")#the solution, the #color(blue)("more")#solute you will dissolve.
- Particle Size: The
#color(red)("larger")#the particle size, the #color(red)("less")#solute you will dissolve.
Answer A is incorrect: Decreasing temperature will only decrease the amount of solute you dissolve.
Answer B is incorrect: Allowing the solution to settle means that you are not agitating it, which means you will not dissolve as much solute.
Answer D is incorrect: Larger particles mean that you will dissolve less solute.
Answer C is correct: By stirring, you're agitating the solution, which means you'll dissolve a greater amount of solute.
Hope that helped :)
