Alka-Seltzer® and Gas Solubility: Effect of Temperature—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Understanding chemical principles comes largely from encounters in daily life. Regarding the effect of temperature on solubility, students relate to preparing food and beverages to generalize that the solubility of a solute increases with increasing temperature. While generally true for solids and liquids, the Alka-Seltzer® and Gas Solubility: Effect of Temperature—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity investigates the effect of temperature on the solubility of a gas to show that this generalization is always wrong for gases.
