Solubility of which compound is maximum in water:

a  LiI

b  LiF

c  LiCl


Expert Answer

Step 1

The chemical property that refers to the ability of a substance to dissolve in a solvent is known as solubility.

Step 2

Solubility is inversely proportional to the lattice energy. LiF has the highest lattice, thus; it has least solubility in water. The size of I is greater than the size of the Cl and the hyd...
