Yes, rubbing alcohol boil.

because water has a higher specific heat than alcohol.

Because the boiling point of ethanol (the alcohol in vodka) is lower than that of water.

if they are mixed together the water will boil off into steam before the alcohol as alcohol has a higher boiling point

Salt does not make water boil faster. It makes it boil slower.

Yes ice water does boil faster because if hot water freezes faster than ice water tan when you boil ice water than it will do the opposite than before. sincerely, Danielle

Prescence of impurities in salted water(salt)would raise its boiling point and it will boil after a long time(slower)than ordinary water

When adding salt to water it will boil faster. This occurs because the presence of salt in the water increased the boiling point.

hot water because the atoms and the molecules are already moving around which will cause it to boil faster

water boils faster with the lid on because the heat gathers in the pot making the water boil.

Ethanol (drinkable alcohol) boils at 78.4 celsius, 173 fahrenheit. Rubbing alcohol boils at 82.3 celsius, 180 fahrenheit.

Alcohol. Water boils at 100oc while alcohol boils at 50oc.

A small amount of water will reach it's boiling point sooner than a large amount of water. It will not boil faster.

If you sprinkle a pinch of salt in the water it will make boil faster and no it won't make your food salty

The salt in the water contains more heat than regular water, which helps the egg boil faster.

Alcohol has a lower boiling point than water. Naturally the alcohol evaporates leaving the flavanoids and the water. If you boil 100 % alcohol, then it would act like plain water. It will boil until it all evaporates.

Carbonated water boils faster than tap water or purified water.

water will boil faster in a large pot because the water has more contact with the bottom of the pot than the small pot. That means the water reaches the stove's heat more and will boil faster. For the small pot, the water won't be as close to the stove's heat which is closer to the bottom of the pot. Therefore, the water in the smaller pot will boil slower.

It does NOT boil faster than water. It has higher boiling point AND lower freezing point. - Antifreeze boils at about 197 c.

Salt lowers the boiling point of the water, which make the water reach its boiling point at a lower temperature, resulting in a faster boil.
