State the factors on which solubility depends.

Expert Answer:

Solubility depends upon the temperature, pressure, nature of solute and nature of the solvent. Therefore, not every solid or gas dissolve in a given liquid.
For example, sodium chloride and sugar dissolve readily in water, whereas naphthalene and anthracene do not.
