  1. Here is a link to the solubility in hot and cold water. Being an acid, it is very soluble in NaOH. From the link on solubility in water you should be able to make an educated guess as to the solubility in cold/hot HCl.

    Choose the member of each set that you would expect to be more soluble in water. Explain your answer. Chloroform, CH3Cl, or hydrogen chloride. My gut instinct was HCl, however I'm not sure why [or if] it's more soluble than CH3Cl.
