The solubility of a gas in water decreases as temperature
increases, and increases as temperature decreases. Using
the kinetic molecular theory, explain why this is so.
I would like an opinion please on my answer below. Is it a sufficient explanation?
The Attempt at a Solution
According to the Kinetic Molecular Theory, when you increase temperature, the
gas moleclues are moving faster causing the solubility to decrease because of
more collision between the particles. When the temperature decreases, the gas
molecules are not moving as fast, causing them to have a higher solubility.
