Do Sugar Crystals Grow Faster In Tap Water Or In Distilled Water?

Many studies on this have found that sugar crystals grow faster in distilled water rather than in tap water. This is due to the purity of distilled water.

Distilled water is water that has many of its impurities removed through distillation. Distillation involves boiling the water and then condensing the steam into a clean container.

Drinking distilled water is quite common. Many beverage manufacturers use distilled water to ensure a drink's purity and taste. Bottled distilled water is sold as well, and can usually be found in supermarkets or pharmacies. Water purification, such as distillation, is especially important in regions where water resources or tap water is not suitable for ingesting without boiling or chemical treatment.

Municipal water supplies often add or have trace impurities at levels which are regulated to be safe for consumption. Many of these additional impurities, such as volatile organic compounds, fluoride, and certain other chemical compounds are not removed through conventional filtration; however, distillation can eliminate some of these impurities.

Distilled water is also used as drinking water in arid seaside areas which do not have sufficient freshwater, by distilling seawater.

The availability of tap water has major public health benefits, since it typically vastly reduces the risk to the public of contracting water-borne diseases. Providing tap water to large urban or suburban populations requires a complex and carefully designed system of collection, storage, treatment and distribution, and is commonly the responsibility of a government agency, often the same agency responsible for the removal and treatment of wastewater.

Specific chemical compounds are often added to tap water during the treatment process to adjust the pH or remove contaminants, as well as chlorine to kill biological toxins. Local geological conditions affecting groundwater are determining factors for the presence of various metal ions, often rendering the water "soft" or "hard".

Tap water remains susceptible to biological or chemical contamination. In the event of contamination deemed dangerous to public health, government officials typically issue an advisory regarding water consumption. In the case of biological contamination, residents are usually advised to boil their water before consumption or to use bottled water as an alternative. In the case of chemical contamination, residents may be advised to refrain from consuming tap water entirely until the matter is resolved.

In many areas a compound of fluoride is added to tap water in an effort to improve dental health among the public. In some communities "fluoridation" remains a controversial issue.

Sugar crystals grow fast in distilled water as compare to the tap water. The reason behind this is that tap water contain a lot of impurities that might interact with the molecules of the sugar crystal lattice. These impurities are in the central area and crystals also grow from the center that's why tap water do not allow sugar crystals to grow faster. Details

They grow faster in distilled water. I actually did this experiment at home. It is due to how much more pure and clean distilled water is compared to tap water.

Well distilled is cleaner so I think it grow faster in distilled

I think they will grow faster in distilled water because it went through purification. Tap water is city water, municipal water, and running water. Distilled waters has impurities removed by boling it.

Sugar crystals grow faster in distilled water because distilled water is purified water

Sugar crystals are mixed in the distilled water faster than the tapped water due to the purification of distilled water.

My daughter and I are doing this project, and have tried it three times. Every time the sugar crystals grow faster in the distilled water. But all the research we are finding is giving us mixed reviews! AAH! I don't know what to do!

I will have to say sugar crystals grow faster in distilled water because I have don't this experiment for my science fair project and it grew faster in distilled water

Sugar crystals do not grow faster in tap water it only grows faster in distilled water

I think distilled water because is way more cleaner than tap water so distilled water wins for sure...you distilled water wins ....I'm going to do this project at home for sure see you guys later....!you it won...yes..yes..yes..yes..and yes yes yes yes

I think your wrong because I tried it and tap water work more better then distilled water also it came in first place 5 times
