Chapter 12 - Solutions - Exercises: 12.6

Answer

Temperature indirectly affects solubility, as the temperature is a measure of the heat energy. Therefore, as the temperature rises so does the heat energy of the ion, which causes the ions around it to move faster. In turn resulting in a higher interaction of the dissociated ions with the polar water molecules, causing an increase in solubility.
