Plain water freezes quicker than salt water. Salt is a heating element, which is why it is often used to melt ice. This property causes water that has salt in it to freeze at a slower pace.

plain water, but the salt water will freeze colder

Salt water will freeze faster because salt soaks in heat, making the water colder faster

plain water Salt lowers the freezing point of water.

water freezes faster and only water freezes it takes AGES for salt water to freeze water takes about 4 hours in a freezer

Salt water does not freeze faster than pure water, and it freezes at a lower temperature. Salt is a form of anti-freeze, which is why it is put on roads in the winter, to help melt the snow.

Salt lowers the temp at which water freezes, that's all that happens. So it will defrost quicker, too.

Plain Tap water would freeze fastest.Adding salt or sugar to tap water will cause a depression/decrease in freezing point. Hence it will be harder to freeze the tap salt or sugar water.

It depends on how you're trying to freeze them, of course: if you have a freezer that goes to 0 degrees F, like the one in the back room of a supermarket, it'll take as long to freeze the salt water as it would plain water. (Salt water has a lower freezing temperature than plain water but if you have a cold-enough freezer, it'll freeze.) If you pour it into liquid nitrogen, it'll freeze instantly. It also depends on the temperature of the salt water at first. Also, which type of salt, and how pure the water is. It also depends on the concentration of salt.

Saturated salt water freezes at a lower temp than saturated sugar water, which freezes at a lower temp than plain water. So plain water will freeze first then sugar water then salt water. Thank you QUIRKIE @

Water will freeze faster than salt water.

Plain water because the salt in the other water lowers the freezing point. All molecules must line up in order to freeze, therefore if adding salt, the Na and CL must line up with the water molecules in order to freeze. With plain water, the molecules line up faster and thus freeze faster.

The salt is a substance and it a ingredient that will not freeze.

No, when water freeze it does not freeze salt.

Sugar water freezes faster because it is polar and its bonds are less complicated and strong as the normal water and salt water.

which water will freeze faster? cold water with salt or hot water with salt????

If the salt is still in the water it will freeze inside the water so its technically frozen

That depends on what you mean by faster. at -90 degrees up in Alaska somewhere, most all water will freeze about the same time. But normally the extra ions in salt and sugar water will generally lower the freezing/melting point temperature somewhat below 32 degrees. So for example at 31 degrees plain water will start to freeze but salt water might not and sugar water might not. Depending on how much salt you use it changes the freezing/melting point

Yes, that is why water dissolves quicker with salt.

Salt water has a slightly higher density, so it will be a little quicker to swim in fresh water.

no salt water does not freeze faster than sugar.

Salt Water, in short, rusting is the process of forming iron oxide. In short the salt water is more conductive, thus creating a better electrolyte allowing the rust process to occur quicker.
