If more salt will dissolve in a saltwater solution, it is for the simple reason that there is more 'room' for more salt to dissolve. Salt will only dissolve in salt water solutions which have not reached salt saturation.

The amount of time and speed it takes to dissolve sugar in water and dissolve salt in water depends on the amounts of salt and sugar, the amount of water, and the temperature of the water. The approximate time needed to dissolve the sugar and salt in water is 25 minutes.

Water can dissolve many materials to create a solution. For example salt dissolves into water. If the water is saturated, or full of salt in simple terms, the salt wont dissolve. ---------------------------------------------- No' water will not dissolve ANY substance. For instance water will not dissolve candle wax. However' water will dissolve SOME substances. For instance water will dissolve sugar or salt.

Rock salt, or Halite, is the same as table salt and will dissolve just the same. However, impurities in the salt may not dissolve in water.

Salt can dissolve in water because the salt molecules hide between the water molecules so that means it can dissolve but it hasn't dissapeared in the water

Alcohol is a non-polar solvent and does not dissolve salt as well as water does. If there is water in the alcohol then some of it will dissolve.

The substance that will dissolve in a solvent is the "solute." For instance, Salt will dissolve in water. The water is the solvent and the salt is a solute.
