Pure water freeze faster.

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

plain water, but the salt water will freeze colder

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.

Water will freeze faster than salt water.

no salt water does not freeze faster than sugar.

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

Salt water freezes faster.

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

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.

Salt water does not freeze faster than regular water... When salt is put in water, it stops the water from freezing, and it needs to be colder than usual.

plain water Salt lowers the freezing point of water.

Pure water freezes faster than water with impurities. If tap water has a lesser concentration of impurities than salt water the tap water will freeze faster. Some municipalities who have petroleum products in the tap water will likely freeze after the salt water.

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

Fresh water freezes faster than salt water, yes.

It doesn't. Tap water freezes faster than salt water.

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

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

I believe that plain water will be boil the faster because the others have a higher boiling point when compared to plain water.

Plain water. Adding salt will raise the boiling point so it will take longer.
