Tap water boils faster than the salt water because tap water has less particles than the salt water.
It also would depend on the salt content of the water. Have one pot/pan (same sizes/material)with regular water(at same level) and one with salt (choosing a amount that is enough to detect a difference in the two ) place a cooking thermometer in each and see which one reaches the hottest temperature the fastest by timing them after setting the heat at the same approximate levels.
Salt water does not boil faster than regular water, it boils hotter.
Example: Cooking Macaroni
Salt water has a higher boiling point than normal water, so when it does start boiling, it boils at a higher temperature, which cooks the macaroni faster.
It's Chemistry 101; The addition of salt to water does NOT decrease the boiling point, it, in fact, increases it. Here is the answer, as defined by Wikipedia: "It comes to a boil slower (i.e. Increases the boiling temperature), this increases the possible cooking temperature and so will cause foods boiled in salt water to cook faster. Pure solutions will generally have lower boiling points than mixtures. Adding sugar to the water will have a similar effect but would not be nearly as nice to cook food in! However, if water is heated up to a high temperature and then the salt is added it could cause the entire pot to start boiling as a result of the salt acting as nucleation sites."
No it doesn't. The presence of a solute (i.e. Salt ) in a solvent (water) changes the temperature at which the solvent's vapor pressure becomes equal to the atmospheric pressure (definition of boiling point). So the solution (solvent + salt) has an effective higher boiling point. The reason boiling salt water cooks things faster is because the salt water is boiling at a higher temperature than tap water! So your pasta is dancing around in boiling salt water that is say 220°F compared to regular water that is only 212°F.
Salt water boils slower than regular tap water but salt water boils things (food) faster than regular tap water
Yes, it lowers the boiling point. So it boils faster.
I think you people that write stupid stuff should quit it because some of us need this for school! So back OFF!
Water boils faster because nothing is in it just h2o
Yes, salt makes water boil faster because iodized water when placed under heat needs a lot of hydrogen bonds to help weaken the charge in Na and Cl, there by forming more bonds and creating more molecules that aid in making the water heat up fast. Also salt helps in reducing the freezing point of water, therefore if salt has already been added to water and is boiled it doesn't take much time compared to when boiling pure water.
Sodium creates a chemical reaction with water lowering it's boiling point
I think that salt water will boil faster
Salt water will boil faster
Does water boil faster with salt added?
Does salt water boil than plain water
Slat water because it faster you know
Its plain water I could prove it
Plain water boils faster.
NO, Salt Water takes longer to boil than tap water....because the salt changes the point point of the water:)
Actually, the addition of salt increases the boiling point of water and depresses the freezing point (hence why you use salt to melt ice outside). But you would have to add a lot of salt to make a huge change in boiling point.
Salt water will boil much faster than tap water.
Ok, people. All your theories sound great but my son and I just did the experiment. We were very precise in measuring our water, salt and timing. Geuss what, the salted water boiled first....go figure.
Yes it really really does and it lowers the boiling point
No salt water boils hotter
Well I thought the same thing but my grandmother told me that it doesn't make the water boil faster it makes the noodles have a better taste lol. Not sure which one is right.
Water boles faster because I did it three times and they all one.
I guss not Because When you boil the solt with the water is will consist of kinetic energy .But water Does not. That is why the water boils faster than salt water.
Slat water boils faster than tap water. I have done an experiment in science class.
Salt water may get hoter but the boiling temp. Stays the same who ever done the experiment and got salt water had done it incorrect
