The equilibrium of the solvation of borax reaction

This preview shows page 2 - 5 out of 5 pages.

2. The equilibrium of the solvation of borax reaction changes with temperature because the reaction can go farther with a higher temperature. This is because
temperature is a reactant in the solvation of borax reaction. Even if temperature was a product of this reaction it would still cause the solubility of borax to change with temperature, except the solubility would decrease with increasing temperature instead of increase with increasing temperature like it does.
3. E. Reflection 1. Is the solvation of borax in water exothermic or endothermic? Does the solubility of borax increase or decrease as temperature increases?
