Which of the following changes will increase the amount of solid solute able to be dissolved in a liter of liquid water?
increasing surface area
I don't think the correct answer isn't listed.
Pressure has almost no effect on the solubility of solids. The answer you may be looking for is increasing T; however, some solids are more soluble at lower temperatures. Increasing surface area increases the RATE of the solubility but it doesn't change the solubility at equilibrium.
