Real Life Examples of Solubility
What are some real life examples of when an experiment/procedure of temperature and the solubility of salts will have to be conducted? And why do these experiments have to be conducted?
What are some ways that companies are speeding up reactions?
I know that there could increase concentration/pressure and increase the temperature. But the question was asking for examples of ways companies speed up reactions, so I'm guessing real life examples. more
