Solubility of Gases

  1. Feb 15, 2004 #1
    I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some good information regarding why the solubility of gases decreases with the increase of temperature. The only description I have is a cheap example involving a pop can where as the temperature of the can is increased the kinetic energy increases and gas leaves the solution. This results in the flatness of the pop. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a more description explaination.

    --- excepting He in water, solubility increases with temperature, and maybe some others. How much thermo have you had? Or, how deeply did you feel like digging?

    The evaporation occurs primarily through the top surface of the liquid. The concept should make perfect sense. If you want the quantitative details, you will need to peruse through some advanced books.
