3.

Why is it that ceric sulphate which is a solid inorganic salt becomes less soluble in
water as the temperature increases?

4.

Hydrogen sulfide, H2S, is a toxic gas responsible for the odor of rotten eggs. The
solubility of H2S (g) in water at STP is 0.195 M. What is the solubility in water at
0oC and a partial pressure of 25 mm Hg.
