Miscible means that a homogenous mixture will form. Solubility of a compound depends on Atomic radius, molecule size, and temperature

Work Step by Step

Factors that affect solubility of a solid in a liquid are: Atomic Radius: The larger the atomic radius the less attraction the ion will face and thus it would take less energy to break the ionic bond to dissolve Molecule size: The larger the molecule the harder it is for dissolution because it is harder for the solvent to surround the solute Temperature: The higher the temperature the more kinetic energy present to break the ionic bonds to dissolve a substance
