What is Solubility?

The amount of solute present in a solution is called solubility

It is the maximum amount of solute which can be dissolved in 100 gm of Solvent at a particular temperature.

Example

Solubility of Salt is 36gm (at 20 degree celsius)

It means maximum 36 gm of salt can be dissolved in 100 gm of water at 20 degree celsius


Effect of Temperature on Solubility

  • In case of Solids Dissolved in Liquids
    If we increase the temperature, solubility increases
    If we decrease the temperature, solubility decreases

 

  • In case of Gases dissolved in liquids
    If we increase the temperature, solubility decreases
    If we decrease the temperature, solubility increases
