Adding salt to boiling water increases the water's boiling point temperature. Adding any nonvolatile solvent, including salt, to a pure solvent increases its boiling temperature in a process scientists call boiling-point... More »

Adding salt to water increases the boiling point of water due to a fundamental colligative property of matter known as boiling point elevation. Whenever a solute, such as salt, is added to a solvent, such as water, the b... More »

The boiling point of salt water depends on the percentage of salt. Water with 20 percent salt boils at 216 degrees Fahrenheit, as opposed to 212 degrees Fahrenheit for pure water. Adding a small amount of salt to a pot o... More »

Adding salt to water increases the boiling point of water due to a fundamental colligative property of matter known as boiling point elevation. Whenever a solute, such as salt, is added to a solvent, such as water, the b... More »

Adding salt to water increases the density of the whole solution. As a result, the solution has a lower freezing point, as the example of seawater shows. On average, seawater has approximately 3.5 percent salinity, and i... More »

The reason salt increases the density of water is that the mass of the resulting saltwater solution increases, while the volume is unaffected. The density of a substance is given as the mass (m) per its volume (V). The e... More »

When salt is added to water, it raises the boiling point, requiring the salt water to reach a higher temperature to boil. The boiling point increases as more salt is added to the water. More »
