Why is oxygen more soluble that nitrogen?


Question asked by: asimoo

Asked on: 17 Dec 2010

Oxygen is more soluble than nitrogen, based on the calculation from Henry's Law which is the one used to determine relative solubility of gases in water.

This looks at
the partial pressure of a gas to its mole-fraction in the liquid phase, and thus declares how much of the gas is dissolved.
