Although there are numerous ways to separate salt from water, you can use a simple solar process with minimal equipment over the course of two to three days. The required materials are a baking sheet, black paper and sal... More » Science Chemistry

A salt water pool pump is a system that converts regular salt into chlorine in a pool. The salt-chlorinated water will not burn people's eyes like regular chlorine does. The salt content is one-tenth that of ocean water. More » Home & Garden Outdoor Pools & Hot Tubs

Ice melts faster in fresh water than in salt water. The higher the salt content, the slower the ice melts. More »

Adding salt to water actually boosts the boiling point a few degrees, but even with the higher boiling point, salt water boils faster than pure water because salt water has a lower heat capacity than pure water. This mea... 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 » Science Chemistry States of Matter

Iodized salt, also known as table salt, melts faster than rock salt, according to It does so because of multiple reasons, including its surface size and freezing temperature. More »
