Maximum amount of a solid solute that can be dissolved in a specified amount of a given liquid solvent does not depend upon ____________.
A. Temperature

B. Nature of solute

C. Pressure

D. Nature of solvent

Answer :

Pressure has nearly no effect on the solubility of a solute in a solution as solute is nearly incompressible.


Thus, it’s solubility cannot be increased by pressure.


The solubility of solute depends on its nature and nature of the solvent.


The solubility of a solute increases with the increase in temperature as the molecules easily break at a higher temperature, due to the increase in the activation energy.


Thus, Option (iii) is the correct answer.
