solubility of solid in liquid

Expert Answer:

This can be explain with the help of  Le Chatlier's Principle easily according to him if the reaction is endothermic the equilibrium shifts in the direction of endothermic reaction.

SOLIDSOLID in LIQUIOD- HEAT    (endothermic reaction)

equilibrium shifts in right direction. so If the dissolution process is endothermic then the solubility of solid in liquid increases with increase in temperature. and if it is exothermic then the solubility decreases with increase in temperature.
