Why is oxygen less soluble in water as temperature of the water increases ?

Are there any elements that are like this too?

  1. If you look at their solubilities, other gases also become less soluble as the temperature increases

    The solubility of a gas in water is given by Henry's law

    p=Kc

    where p= partial pressure of the gas above the water, c=concentration and K is a tmperature dependant constant, i.e. varies with temperaure.
