The 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen. Distilled water is water "purified" by distillation. Salt water is water with salt in it.

Obviously salt gets dissolved in distilled water. Distilled water is the water with removed impurities in through distillation. you get salt water

Distilled or demineralized water.

Distilled water and demineralized water are very similar, but not identical.

You can buy distilled water at grocery stores, Walmart and stores that are similar.

Distilling salt water separates the salt and the water: water is boiled away and condensed back to water, leaving the salt.

In general, salt water may be colder than distilled(pure) water because the salt water has a high concentration of dissolved ions within it causing its specific heat capacity to be lower than that of distilled water. That is to say, it takes less energy to raise the temperature of salt water then distilled water, which also means that distilled water can retain heat longer than salt water can. Dont really know if thats what you were getting at but there you go.

The difference between salt water and distilled water is that distilled waters freezing point is 0 degrees and the salt waters freezing point is -21.1 degrees. this is because the more salt in water the longer it takes to freeze. salt lowers the temperature which water freezes and melts. answered by A* student.

Theoretically not but the absolute purity is impossible.

Fresh water and rainwater do not contain (many) salts. Distilled water contains no salt.

it can be salt, aluminum foil, distilled water

No, only the distilled portion of it.

Distilled water will rust a nail faster as distilled water contains higher levels of OXYGEN which is what causes OXIDATION or commonly referred to as rust...

Yes!!! If you boil the water enough, the salt will stick to the pan, and then you'll have distilled clean fresh water.
