Does the solubility of air depend upon the temperature of water? If yes, how ?
Asked by Aryan Srivastava | 13th Nov, 2014, 07:15: PM
The reason for this gas solubility relationship with temperature has similarity to the reason of vapor pressure increases with temperature. Increased temperature causes an increase in kinetic energy. The higher kinetic energy causes more motion in molecules which break intermolecular bonds and escape from solution. Hence, the solubility of air or gases decreses with increse in temperature.
