There is no such thing as "surface area" of "solubility" since the latter refers to the maximum concentration in the solution of a solid (or liquid) in a liquid. "Surface area", as applied to such a phenomenon is meaningless. However, by *increasing* the surface area of, say, a salt, by grinding it, will increase its solubility. Maybe *that* is what the questioner meant.

Mass has no direct effect on the surface area of an object. You can increase mass without changing anything other property of an object. Volume, Size, and Shape effect surface area.

Surface area is an assignment of a positivereal number to a certain class of surfaces that satisfies several natural requirements. The most fundamental property of the surface area is its additivity: the area of the whole is the sum of the areas of the parts.

It is the surface area of the two ends plus the surface area of the curved surface. Surface area of each end is pir2 Surface area of the curved surface is 2pirh Total surface area = 2pir2 + 2pirh

To obtain the ratio of surface area to volume, divide the surface area by the volume.

Dissolving occurs faster when there is more surface area

Not the true solubility but the speed of dissolving.

No. Solubility is a physical property.

solubility an intrinsic property

No. Solubility is a physical property.

Nothing. Solubility depends of temperature and pressure, not surface area. At the same temperature and pressure C02 has the same solubility, whether you have 10 cm square surface area or 1000 cm2. Maybe you meant the rate of diffusion?

A chemical property is solubility.

Particle size affects solubility. When particle size is small, the surface area per unit volume is larger, thus the solubility is increased.
