Which of the following solvents would most effectively dissolve a nonpolar gas like methane?

a polar solvent at 10°C

a polar solvent at 35°C

a nonpolar solvent at 35°C

a nonpolar solvent at 10°C

is it a?

  • chemistry -

    No. Remember that like dissolves like.

    so d?

  • chemistry -

    Right. But why not c ?

  • chemistry -

    I remember reading something about nonpolar gases dissolving in colder temperatures

  • chemistry -

    You read right. Gases are more soluble in cold water than in warm water.
