• # question_answer The solubility of$C{{O}_{2}}$ in water decreases with increase in temperature. Explain.

Answer:

The dissolution of $C{{O}_{2}}$ gas in water is exothermic in nature because the gas contracts in volume. Thus, on increasing the temperature, the speed of the endothermic or reverse process will increase according to Le Chatelier's principle. Therefore, the solubility of $C{{O}_{2}}$  in water will decrease with the increase in temperature.
