# Why do we increase the why do we increase the surface area of a solid when dissolving?

# Increasing the surface area of a solid?

this question doesn't make much sense, but to increase the surface area of a 3D solid such as a cube or a pyramid or a sphere, I guess u would just add more mass to it

# What increases the rate at which a solid dissolves?

well, im no scientist im only 15 and this is my homework but im in honors chemistry so here=crushing the solid increases the rate at which a solid dissolves ur welcome:)

# What does increasing the surface area of a solid do?

Makes it bigger.

# How can you increase the surface area of a solid reactant?

How can you increase the surface area of a solid reactant?

# What happens when you increase the surface area of a solid?

It reacts with other chemicaps a lot faster because there are more particles readily available at one point in time for reactions to occur

# Increasing surface area of a solid?

Solids will expand when heated, contract when cooled. The minimal surface area of a solid will be a perfect sphere. Anything you do to deviate from a sphere will increase …the surface area. Flattening a metal like gold due to its malleability/Ductility will also increase its surface area. Smaller objects have more surface area to total volume than larger objects... so a bag of BB's would have more surface area than a large ball, although I suppose the surface area to mass would be the same. Highly porous materials, or rough or convoluted surfaces will also have high surface areas.

# What does it mean to increase the surface area of a solid?

increase the surface area of a solid means to increase the area of solid

# Grinding a solute increases its surface area making it dissolve more quickly or slowly?

it does if the water have enough space in it.

# Increasing the surface of a solid?

Make it rougher. Any deviation from a smooth sphere increases the surface area.

# When you crush a solid do you increase or decrease surface area?

You increase the surface area

# What is the effect of increasing the surface area of a solid?

It exposes more of the solid to whatever you want to mix it with so that whatever you are doing, whether it be a physical or chemical change, will take place more rapidly.

# What would happen if you increased the surface area of a solid?

the volume would get bigger, and the solid itself would just get bigger.

# What will increasing the surface area of a solid do to the dissolving rate of that solid?

It will increase it, as more of the outer surface of the solid is incontact with the liquid that it is dissolving in. :)

# What does increasing the surface area of a solid do to the solution?

When the surface area is higher, it helps to dissolve it in the solution faster.
