. The value of Henrys constant KH is


A: greater for gasses with higher solubility.

B: greater for gasses with lower solubility.

C: constant for all gasses.

D: not related to the solubility of gases.

Best Answer

Explanation:

Henry’s law can be given as follows:

P=KHK

Where P = Partial Pressure of gas

KH = Henry’s constant

X = Solubility of gas in liquid

This equation, suggests that Henry’s Kconstant  is inversely proportional to solubility of gas in liquid which suggests that values of Henry’s  Kconstant  is greater for gasses with lower solubility and lower for gasses having higher solubility.

Final answer:

Thus we can say that option B is the correct answer. The value of Henry's constant Kis greater for gasses with lower solubility.
