Salt does not make water freeze slower. However, if it was ice, the salt would melt the ice.

to make water freeze faster you put it some place that's colder.

Yes because lemonade has lemon and lemon makes a tart taste usually which will make it freeze slower unlike water which doesnt have any tartness in it so water will freeze faster then lemonade. please give me trust points.

Salt doesn't make water freeze faster or slower.Actually, it is not a question of faster or slower, but of the freezing point, or the temperature at which the water freezes. Salt added to water decreases the freezing point. So, on a day when the temperature reaches 32 degrees Fahrenheit, water with salt in it will simply not freeze (this is why fast or slow has nothing to do with it). The more salt, the lower the temperature must go in order for the water to freeze. This is true until the water reaches its saturation point (holds as much as salt as it can in solution), then adding more salt will not make a difference.

I do not know the answer but i think hot water will freeze faster than cold water. wizgirl says~ i do not believe that water will freeze faster. that does not make sense at all.

Cold air and hot water makes water freeze faster simply because the hot water is steaming and so the result is that there is less water to freeze. hot water = steam = less water less water = faster freeze cold air = faster freeze

its because tap water has diffrent liquids in it that make it freeze faster then pepper water.

Salt water make Lima beans grow slower

how could you make your ice cream taste better

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

Colored water has dissolved compounds in the water, so according to the colligative properties, the water will freeze at a LOWER temperature than normal water. Thus, all things being equal, colored water will not freeze faster, but it will freeze slower than normal water.

When its half way frozen,it tends to fall slower and slower then it becomes frozen and stiff.

Salt because water especially hot water will make it freeze faster.

Sodium chloride has a positive heat ot of dissolution.

Water because soda has many chemicals that make it melt slower.

No it does'nt!It makes it go slower. by alshacore

Faster. Sodium normally makes the rate of water being boiled speed up miraculous.

I have no idea but wouldn't it make more sense for cool water to freeze faster than warm water because it is closer to freezing temperature. I will have to try it out because I am curious now x x x

It will not make you go faster. It can make you go slower, Unless you are Strong enough that if won't hinder your speed.

Probably Not because sugar makes a lot of people slower.

because water is generally cold unless heated in a kettle. Coffee on the other hand is warm when you make it so if the water is colder to start with it will take less time to freeze.

AnswerHot water doesn't freeze fasterAccording to, hot water freezes faster than cold water.But I do not have any idea about your question.lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

Adding salt to water will lower the freezing point, thus requiring the salt water to get colder before it will freeze - it thus takes longer to freeze because it takes additional time to cool from the normal freezing point on down to the new (colder) freezing point.

if it is a big pot it will cook slower if it isa small pot it will cook faster but it really depends on what temperature it is on
